    Looks neat but can I order it for less $$$ without the crappy OS if I just want it for a Linux box?  Or do I have to pay the Apple tax?

    The machine I built three years ago has a higher spec than these devices -- why would I pay for a downgrade?

    Because it looks shiny.

    Cool!!! You built a mac and reprogrammed OSX?

    Why do so many people insist on comparing apples and organges (sorry about the pun)? A Mac is different. It can do with 'less', that's just a fact. And I'm not saying the mac mini is as good a 3,8GHz Xeon either.

    Different.

    Sorry, but the Mac Mini does not even have the minimum system requirements which are required to play World of Warcraft. This thing is a dud, and if you feel like spending $600 for something that can only surf web and do email, well, I wish I had your disposable income.
