I caved and bought home a mini mac last night. 1.42 w/superdrive and 512mg/ram, 80g hard drive, and wireless.

Easy hookup into my network, existing monitor, speakers etc... and went looking for software, firefox, limewire etc.. all fast and easy to download and install.

Not finding the interface as intuitive as some hardcore mac users I spoke with would have you believe, mind you, I have been playing with PC's over 20 years now.

Will probably be calling on some of you devoted mac users to point me in the right direction as I test this little mac out.

and I thought you were quiet and stuck in your ways.... Bloody hell. Try asking your kids. They might be using it at school.

If you believe Steve Jobs, your 4 legged kids could use it.....

Congrats, AmericanBulldog! Funny that more than a few people I thought would never consider a Mac getting Minis.

>> Not finding the interface as intuitive

Yea, especially when you're used to something else. I remember cursing XP for not being able to do something that was brain-dead simple on the Mac... after a while I realized it could do it, and it was brain-dead simple... just the key combos were different. Just took some getting used to.

Have fun :)

Jan,James,

Thanks for the encouragement, there has already been a few calls to support and much cursing trying to do the simplest of things, and I can say I'm not crazy for the email client.

I don't see it as becoming an everyday machine for me at this point, but it will have it's place. PC settings are pretty much a reflex for me after having so many over the years.

Try alternate mail programs... Thunderbird is supposed to be pretty good, and Eudora (which I use) has a free "lite" and a full-featured "sponsored" version available.

Personally, I didn't like Mail or Safari, but once I installed Firefox and Eudora, I was a happy camper. :)
