05-17-2006, 07:12 PM #1AMacSoonGuestThe first days with my mac mini ...
Mac Mini Intel Dual Core w/ 2 GB of RAM and a BENQ FP202W connected to it
Short: I love it !
Everything is so easy and the UI is very intuitive (I yet have to get used to this simple way of thinking *g*)
Installing Windows in Parallels Workstation, Copying 40.000 Images over a nnetwork, Importing 1500 Songs into iTunes, 7 simultaneous downloads (all at the same time!) and my mini is responsive as it would just do nothing!
Data migration was no problem at all (except for a few thousand mails that I had to "transfer" using an IMAP account.
The only "gotcha" is that i sometimes still press APPLE-Q for the "@" ... which of course closes the currennt application.
Rosetta-apps like MS Mac Office and Photoshop run smothely (just like on my former Windows machine).
In 2-3 Months I will buy one of those new MacBooks for my mobile needs

OSX on the Core Duo mini is VERY smooth and nice.
5GB is all I intend to give Windows XP. I have AMD 64 Systems to run Windows on. The only reasons I even put XP on it at all was to see how it worked and to help others here at Mac Forums who need to install XP for certain applications....Dennis

I'm more the classic arcade type gamer. I like to launch a game, play it for 15, maximum 30 minutes to get my head free, and then back to work.

I really am not going to forgive Jobs for saying "iPhoto scrolls like butter"... :flower:
I agree though that Mac OS X runs very well on Intel hardware, its only the emulated stuff that causes me some issues.
I can see myself at the end of the year getting an Intel Core Duo Mini.

Have you played WoW on a Mini?
