Mac Mini 2.0

I have my G4 Mac Mini… but now it’s outdated because, it’s now available as a Intel powered Mac Mini. So cool in just about every way, except the Intel Integrated Graphics, which even Apple agrees is junk. I do like the audio in put (which was missing on the G4 version), and support for FrontRow. I wonder how many will be stacking them, so you can swap between the two architectures with a KVM switch.

Also saw a MacBook Pro the other day. Oh so very sexy. Very slick as usual.

Now what I really want to see (and have) is the replacement for the PowerMac. In my dreams it’s quad core, ships with 2GB RAM, dual SATA hard drives, and has a pretty similar design to the current PowerMac line. Oh yea, a 2nd media bay for another drive or accessory. I don’t like having a whole tower and 1 bay.

Even those old Mac Minis are awesome, but I see the new ones moving to take over the DVR market soon; or at least the homebuilt/MythTV ones. What I’m wating for is the Intel iBook (or whatever name it’ll be, MacBook I assume?) to replace my aging (but still awesome) 800Mhz iBook. While the ‘Pro’ is cool, I just don’t want that much horsepower in a laptop, gimme a cooler lap and a longer battery life instead. Oh, and a widescreen display, after playing with a new Dell widescreen that is now a must. Plus I’m dual booting OS X/Linux on the iBook, and ‘presumeably’ that’ll be even *more* supported in future Macs.
