Hello

I am very new to the Mac world. I am thinking about getting a Mac mini. Possiblly looking at a mid-range mini because of the processor speed. What I am wondering is that if there is an external usb modem that will work with the mini? L like the Airport and the blue tooth options in the mini but at the present time the only way to the internet is thru a 56k modem. Am I stuck with Apple's internal modem or is there an aftermarket solution. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.

I would get the internal modem for $29 before they take it away and make you buy their new USB modem for $49 like they did with the new iMac. Plus you will save a USB port.

Thanks g5g5 for your help on the modem question. I will certainly try to hunt down an internal modem before they take it away.
