    Mac Mini, who's buyin?
    curious, who out there is gettin a mac mini? Do you already own a iMac/iBook? I'm wondering if the majority of people that will be buying a mac mini are switchers or are they people who already own an iBook or iMac,

    a few guys in the office want to buy the mac mini and are potential switchers. But when i said i was *thinking* about getting one they said "Why, you already have an iBook G4, why not just get an iMac G5 as your desktop?" and it got me thinking that the mac mini and iBook G4 are practically the same except the iBook is a laptop.

    Specs:
    17" Flat Panel iMac -15" 1.5GHz, 80GB HDD, 128MB ATI video card, 1GB RAM- PowerBook
    I'm getting one, mainly to setup with the PC my wife uses with a KVM switch so she can see how she likes it. She loves my PowerBook and, surprising to me, wants to actually learn OSX.

    My shipping date shows on or before Feb 3.
    Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.

    I will be buying one, I don't need it as I have more then one Mac already but how can you pass up a new Apple collectible for $500? I think the cube was at least $1200 when it debuted.

    one more thing, can you add printers and scanners to the mini? Are there USB adapters for printers and scanners? And since there are only 2 usb slots, can you get a usb switch that makes one usb slot into 4-6?
