:lol: :D...

The Apple Mac Mini, is only good for some things... This is Gaming forums. ;) Gaming isn't a Mac Mini speciality.

Cheap PC. Because it has the potential to one day grow into an expensive PC.

And it plays games.

*sad because CompUSSR's Apple guy wasn't there to be harassed today*

I would stay away from the Mac mini. Not good for gaming, rather slow, not expandable at all, and it will most likely be well out of date in under a year (accually, it already is out of date).

Slow!!! Huh? The G4 processor is twice as fast an Intel Penium 4.

Match that 1.25ghz G4 up against a Celeron, and your looking at the equivalant, of 3.0ghz performance.

Which is faster, a 2.4ghz Celeron a 2.4ghz Pentium 4 a 2.4ghz AMD 64

See, clock speed means notin'. That MacMini is a powerfull machine.

That apple is a good machine, I recommend it, except for gaming. Or -$400 systems. such as AMD K6/7s, or Pentium IIs, or 600mhz Celerons.
