Hello,

Earlier on this forum someone said that Mac Minis make good desktop computers as long as you only use it less than an hour a day. I want a Mac Mini, however, I'd be using it a couple hours a day. Is this true? Also, can someone explain why?

Not sure who said that, or what they were basing it on, but you can use a Mini for as long as you need to. You shouldn't have any problems using it all day if you need to.

I hope you took their message the wrong way. If not, that is not true in any way, shape or form. I have a 1.66 Mini Core Duo. Was doing Folding @ Home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at full 100% CPU on both cores and even leading my whole folding team with it. NEVER did it act up. One of the most stable Systems I have ever owned.

That's weird...you can use the Mac mini as long as you need to. I'm using my Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz one for 9 hours a day here at the office. It's a little workhorse!

I'm sure the HUGE heatsink/cooling stand I have it sitting on has to help.
