    As was said, this isn't really a PC vs Mac thread but I compared the Pandora with the Mini and the mini seemed to be a better deal. I've been tinkering with a dual core mini to put in my car and it seems to run XP just fine. Until there is a decent frontend app and better nav software and satellite radio support, I'll be running XP on it.

    iGuidance 3 seems to have some nice improvements over 2.x and runs well under RoadRunner. That along with a GlobalSat BU-353 seems to be a nice combo for GPS.

    Your set up sounds similar to mine.
    I am running winXP Pro on a mac mini solo upgarged to 1.25 gig ram and 120 gig hard dirve.
    I have the carnix p1900 ver 2.2
    I am using FrodoPlayer and have XM direct. It is working GREAT! except a few things. The Carnix wont turn on mini, but on the carnix site they talk about it needed to be reflased and that should fix it.
    Using a garmin GPS and nRoute as my GPS, need something that is mote touchscreen friendly.

    Do you know where I can find this?

    I think he was referring to Aopen's pandora box.
