If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

And it's $20 less than mine, with a faster & remote.

*shrug*

OTOH, my Mini is now officially a year old - or has been for the last few days - I never really kept track. Woo! I like it a lot. [Smile]

Meh, pretty disappointing considering the hype. I'm surprised it got a whole invitation only event. It's a bit crappy that the graphics in the mini use shared memory, but I like the fact that it has 4 usb connectors. I'm getting tired swapping things round at the back of my mini. Also, it's better that the thing has 2 DIMM slots, instead of just one, but overall I'm not impressed.

I would recommend anyone in the market for a mini check out the apple refurb store. The old G4 minis are pretty damn cheap (at least in the UK), and if you are looking for a budget mac, that's the way I would go.
