This one is gonna be a classic. Good work guys!

On a related note, who has bought mac-ish goodness for their parents?

My mum now has an ipod shuffle dock, logitech webcam, voip headset, and is rapidly accumulating more tech. Next up, coincidentally, is probably a mac-mini...

Me and my dad, we were looking long for xmas present for mum. We wanted small, 12" laptop. And the iBook was a cheapest one so why not ? [Wink]

I'm afraid my mom would be more inclined to use the Mini as a coaster than as a computer. That is to say, she's horribly computer literacy challenged. [ohwell]

I like the Mini I use at work. It runs and runs and makes nary a sound. [Smile]

What's a Mac mini? That would be what my mother would ask when gets. Then when explain to her that it is a computer. She will ask me to hook it up. Then she will go to the nearest bookstore and buy PC for dummies book. Not knowing the differance. Then the Mac mini will sit in a room that no one goes in. And it wil be all hooked up but never turned on.

I am not important. No one is. To be important you need to make history your word must be important. Your inventions must be as equally important.

hahahahaha,

But back to the topic...

I bought a mac mini for my mum on her birthday and she has'nt stopped using all the cool stuff that comes with. It is a really good present from my point of view, for the lesser literate. [Confused]
