    New Macbook, better than Mac Mini?
    I just looked at the specs of the new macbook (the white one) and when I compared it with the specs of the mac mini, the only difference I could see was that the macbook has more memory. So why is that? Is the macbook actually better than the the desktop mac mini? Or did I forget/not notice something?

    Specs:
    2006 macbook, 2009 mac mini
    I think they both have 2 gigs of memory. I think they are identical spec wise(new low end mini). Just comes down to if you want a laptop or not; and cost.

    It is if you think it is.
    If you don't feel that way, then it isn't.

    It's all a matter of personal opinion and what one defines as "better".

    If you want a Desktop, get the Mini. If you need a notebook and portability, get the Macbook.
