I was at Fry's in Sacramento this morning and they had some Minis in stock-- 1.42 Gig w/ the 80 gig hard drive. So...I decided not to wait for the BTO from Apple and went ahead and got one. Just fired it up and came here to post. I guess the first order of business will be to get some extra memory and a USB hub.

Anyways, I'm impressed with how quiet it is and how small and nice looking it is. Goes great with my new iPod photo!

Sweet, I am enjoying mine. Kind of wierd that your iPod almost cost as much as your mac mini. Circuit City has 512mb sticks for $50 after rebates.

I don't think that normal memory sticks from circuit city will cut it. It probably needs a specific kind of RAM. I think it takes PC2700. And even then it needs to be high quality, like Corsair or Crucial.

'cause when it rains, you know it pours.

It doesn't, I have tried a Samsung stick(cheap stuff) in it which worked fine then the Kingston ValueRam(also cheap) which I got at CC also worked just fine. Both were PC3200, which is actually what came in the mini. The original ram in the mini was Hynix, not exactly the best name, but not bad either.
