I now have agateway pc and would like to buy a mini mac, Apple® - Mac mini 1.83GHz
Model: MB138LL/A

I would like to use it for building websites, I'm on a limited budget and this fits in. I'm currently useing frontpage. Does this computer come with a good web building program? Should this be ok for what I'm doing, I have an external hard drive which is quite large.

Thanks

Other than that, I do believe dreamweaver works on mac which from what I hear is a nice webpage design program, comparable to frontpage. I'm not sure though, I'm not a big site designer. Someone else will be able to verify.

A new Mac mini will come with iWeb. It's a very simple web design application. I don't know of any other web page designers for Mac besides Dreamweaver but I haven't done any web design of a Mac in 6 years.

iWeb is similar to Frontpage in that it is a basic web site editor. Dreamweaver is nice but I think it's pretty expensive and it does not come with a new mac. I use iWeb and I like it. You can enter HTML into iWeb as well.

Maybe I'm wrong but I thought FrontPage was Microsoft's version of Dreamweaver. I didn't know I could add my own HTML to iWeb though. Maybe it's a more powerful web designing tool than I thought.

It should be. I don't remember web design being very processor intensive. The Mac mini is a very nice computer despite what some people say. I like it a lot.

The Mac Mini will work fine for what you are after. I have an early Core Duo Mini and it's very fast. It's very much like a Mac Book of the same specs.

There is also an application called RapidWeaver that is a very good Web design application. Like has been said, iWeb comes with the Mac so give it a shot first since it's free.

in all honesty, an old 486 and notepad would be adequate for web design

notepad? I'd rather use vi. Then again, doing it seriously I'd rather use a visual editor. For the same reason I prefer a visual editor for any code. Dreamweaver would be my choice as well, all things being equal. Perhaps because I'm used to it..

Going down the Text Editor road, Textedit comes with OSX but a very good programming text editor is TextWrangler and it's free also. I do most of my basic HTML in TextWrangler.

I thought the OP wanted a program that does it for you.

There is also Coda.
