My Mac mini - Initial thoughts
"We’ve had the Mac mini at the PC Doc HQ for nearly a week now and while the system isn’t fully integrated into the ecosystem, it’s not been left to gather dust either. So, with a week under my belt, I thought I’d pass on my initial thoughts about Apple’s smallest member of the Mac family."

Seven paragraphs of build-up to a conclusion of "it's small, it's quiet, the remote doesn't work but everything else does and make sure you buy an Apple keyboard".

What a poorly conceived article.

Nice try but you ought to do better than that. There was nothing new in the article except the "remote not working thing" which i'm pretty sure, should not have been mentioned unless the batteries checked and confirmed. Not bad though.

That, by itself, is enough to make me disregard the article. Keyboard preferences are VERY subjective; and have nothing to do with the functionality/usefulness/etc of a Mac.

But does the entire Process of Installing Leopard really take almost 2 and a half hours ? Is that true ?

Oh, Ok, I read it Wrong. One Hour & Seventeen Minutes. That's still Long but I'm guessing it's a substancial upgrade from Tiger. For someone that's never done this before, it was nice seeing the Upgrade Screen Shots & knowing What To Expect. Thanks.
