If what you really want is a MacBook Pro, then yes, this would be a waste of money for you. I also considered doing something similar to test the waters before switching, but then I figured, the Macs hold onto their resale value so well that if I didn't like it, I could probably sell it and only lose a couple hundred dollars at most. Alternatively, I figured I could always just put XP on it and use it as a very nice looking Windows notebook.

The Mini is a decent enough machine, but since you're looking at a notebook, my guess is you really need something portable. So, just go with the MacBook Pro and be done with it.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
