    iMac Mini speaker...
    ...what is the sound quality/power output like on the Mac Mini's tiny speaker? Is it 'at least' as good as my G3 Graphite iMacs built in speakers? Can I use/fit a pair of the round, clear speakers (G4 snowball iMac stylee) with the Mac Mini? Thanks.

    You can barely hear the Mac Mini's internal speakers except for when it is used for the start-up sound. I wouldn't plan on using it. If you want to use a pair of the Apple Pro Speakers(the clear round ones sold by Apple), you have to use an adapter from called iFire. You would probably be better of buying a new set of speakers since Apple doesn't sell them anymore and that adapter is $40. I am looking into getting some of the JBL creature speakers for my Mac Mini, Apple sells them for $100 but has them for $74.

    Forget about using the Mini's built in speakers to play music.

    I bought some nice General Electric Speakers at target. The look so cool!
