    Guess what I bought today

    I was finally able to afford one and I had to have it. I spent all day setting it up and learning as much as I could. I see why Apple products are so addictive. This new Mac mini replaced my Linux laptop and my home is now pure Apple, as far as computing devices are concerned.

    This thing is just plain awesome! I have been using Linux for 13 years and OS X blows Linux off the map. I could kick myself for not doing this sooner.

    I was having a look at the Mac mini just now, It isn't something i ever considered as the MacBook pro has always fitted in to my life style really well, It does look fantastic though.

    Finally, ardchoille! You're a persistent man to wait so long! I would have caved in and used a credit card a long time ago...

    Congratulations and have fun!

    My experience with OS X; 24+ hours. I've been all over this operating system, used every single app it shipped with, and it's clear to see that a huge amount of time and thought went into every aspect of Mac OS X. The only thing that I'm not 100% happy with is the fact that Safari doesn't reveal the link target when you mouse-over an HTML link. However, that is a very minor thing that I could easily live with and I'm betting there is an easy fix if I were annoyed enough to research the issue.

    Apple is a publicly traded company which controls all of the software and all of the hardware, so they have a vested interest in making sure the system works. The "walled garden" that everyone complains about is the very reason Apple products are so much better than the competition.

    Thank you , Steve Jobs, I am forever in your debt.

    Ah well done Ardchoille! How much was it (if you don't mind me asking), I really want one but I am thinking of getting one second hand so that I can get it quicker!

    It was $584.99 - I didn't find out that it was on sale until I arrived at the checkout. You may want to check with your local stores and see if they're having a sale.

    After using this Mac mini for three days I have come to the conclusion that it was a steal - even at full price. It's got a small desktop footprint, the OS X system is fast, there is zero bloatware, and I haven't seen a single problem or app crash - and I've put it through its paces. I'm highly impressed with this product. Par for the course, though, I've seen the same things with my iOS products.

    True nobility lies not in being superior to another person, but in being superior to our previous selves.
