    Hello from a happy new Mac Mini owner
    Hi everyone,

    I'm a new member here, so I thought I'd introduce myself. I bought a new Mac Mini just a couple of weeks before Christmas in late 2009 to replace my older G3 iMac. I really like it a lot (a very attractive piece of hardware), and it's been working out great so far. Snow Leopard is a beautiful OS, and I've had a lot of fun playing around with the bundled applications like iLife and GarageBand.

    To be honest, I don't think I can accurately be described as a "switcher," because I've been using PCs since the late '80s, and I currently have a (somewhat) high-end Windows 7 machine as well. But I'm not really prejudiced against either platform -- I think they both have something to offer, and I'd like to think I can benefit and broaden my horizons by working and being familiar with more than one family of computer (I've also dabbled with Linux, but that's a story for another day).

    I remember back in the early '80s when I started to get really serious about personal computing -- I spent a lot of time playing around with our family's Apple //e. We actually still have it -- although unfortunately, the monitor recently died on me. But I still have a converter that allows me to hook it up to a TV, and I also converted all of my 5.25" disks into binaries that I run with an emulator.

    Anyways, thanks for having me here.

    Cheers!

    Hello, and welcome! I bought my Mini two years earlier, to replace a G3 desktop. I ended up buying AppleCare a few weeks later after several people suggested that its parts are on par with those in a laptop. So far, KOW, I haven't had to use it. Just 10 more months...

    So, if you're thinking about it, my experience would be inconclusive. Yeah, I know, big help, eh?

    Enjoy your new Mac!
