I like the Mini, but I very much look forward to a much more powerful Mac in my future.


I'm in the same boat as you. The Mac mini was a big step up in performance from my G3 iBook, but I'm craving more and more power every day.

The demands of the software simply demand it, in my opinion. I hope that the Quad G5 Mac reigns supreme as the most powerful mac ever, even after the intel macs come to market, otherwise I'll be a bit embarrassed at having helped to perpetuate the lie of PowerPC superiority over the years.

At least they went out with a bang. All I have to say is the first Intel machines from Apple better not be dogs. I think that's why Apple is trying to be the first manufacturer to ship certain Intel chips. But will Intel bow down to Apple when they only account for a small percentage of their total sales?

Intel wants the attention that only Apple can get with it's every new product. I don't think they've ever had that in a OEM manufacturer. That's about the only pull Apple has over intel, as they centainly don't buy enough chips, as does Dell.
