This is the greatest day of my computing life. Less than 2 hours in and I've already installed Photoshop CS2, Firefox 2.0, and have configured all of my shared network resources (card reader, printer, fileserver on main PC). This is a piece of cake. I got a 1.83GHZ Mini with 512MB of RAM and this thing isn't as slow as people had made them out to be. I'm running MSN Messenger, Firefox, Photoshop, and a couple of Finder windows wile playing music in iTunes without any problems. Weird.

Anyways, my experience was great at the University Village Apple Store. I got a nice Military discount, bringing my total down under $950 including bluetooth keyboard, mouse, and sales tax.

Here's a screenshot from a few minutes ago...

Congrats! When I got mine, I was hooking it up at school, using the monitor, keyboard and mouse from an older PowerMac. My friend and I were treating it as though it was the holy grail when I was setting it up. It randomly restarted while I was going through the setup, though...

And yes, a mini kicks so much ***, though you sound like you got a better model than I did (Just from the price), so your experience will probably be a lot better than mine.

PC: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz, 2 GM RAM, Total 750 GB HDD, Windows Vista Business (For gaming), Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron (64-bit), Slackware 12 (For GTK# coding)
Mac: 1.66GHz, 1GB RAM, 60GB HDD, Mini

Wow.

This is seriously the greatest computer I've ever owned. I don't know why PC's aren't this easy. This remote thing is the coolest gadget ever.

After the first of the year (read: tax return time) I plan on getting upgrading the processor and maxing the ram out, along with getting it it's own 20+" widescreen LCD. I'm not doing it justice right now on my 19" LCD, but in the hierarchy that is my computer desk, the PC has been relegated to a 15" LCD, and is now the second computer of preference, no longer the first.

Me, too. That car is actually the reason I was able to throw down for a new Mac today. I refinanced last week and I don't have a payment due until the 15th of January, and my new payment is only half of the old payment.

I might run bootcamp just to check it out, but I don't have much of a "real" need for it, as I do have my PC that is plenty capable, though it is over 2 years old. At the very least I'll be upgrading the RAM before trying anything too serious.

Congrats!! Glad you like your new intel Mini.

One question though, you are not running Firefox and Messenger out of the Mounted DMG Image are you? If so, drag the file out of the image to the applications folder otherwise you will have to open the image every time and mount it before you can run those apps. In your picture it looks that way. If you already copied them to the Apps folder, disregard this and enjoy that Mini!!

Thanks for the tip, I suppose I should probably do that before I get frustrated.
