[/RabidMacUserModeOff]What is it that tempts you? If you are satisfied with your current PC set up what possible utility could a Mac mini offer you?
In fact, why would you waste your time at the Apple store looking at them?[/RabidMacUserModeOff]
Well, because they are soooooo slick! Put the "trendiness" issue aside. Apple holds 3% of the PC market. That is NOT a trend. If you own a Mac your friends and neighbors will look at your like you are a Vegan. Move over to a Mac because:
A) They work good. They're still computers, so they get *****ed up now and then, but the headache quotient is lower.
B) It's a nice box. Like a Mini-ITX is a nice box. But different. Sort of neat.
C) New adventure. Don't take my or any Mac zombie's word for it. Decide for yourself. If you hate it, sell it in two months and consider it a $200 experiment.
D) Unix. Really. You can do Unix. And we all know Unix is super cool. If you understand it.
E) No need for virus scanning. No spyware. Yeah, that may be because no one owns them and therefore virus writers don't target them, but my God man, enjoy it while it lasts!
F) Did I mention they work good?
Try it out. Isn't that what the whole Car-PC experimental culture is all about? Get Virtual PC if you have a favorite program that can't be ported. Then you don't have to worry about that "There's no software for the Mac" problem. But if you find yourself running VPC more than 10% of the time, get rid of the Mac. It's not worth it.
