Hi all,

After many years with PC's, and starting with an Apple TV six months ago, an iPhone four months ago, and a Mac Mini two weeks ago, I'm now doing most of my stuff on a Mac. Until I can afford to get a Mac version of Photoshop or Lightroom, the PC still is in use for that (as well as a fileserver for the network).

Upgraded the mini to 4GB - great performance boost.

Having a lot of fun playing with the new apps (have had a reasonable amount of exposure to FreeBSD and OpenBSD unix systems, so the environment is not brand spanking new Smile ).

Hello and thank you for making such a site as this. Soon I'll be making the big leap by selling my Gateway for a brand new macbook and, after getting a look-see at this Mac mini (which brought me here in the first place) I can't waite to see what sort of potential I can discover and make use of.

Once again, thank you.

I'm really glad I found this site. I sold a G5 dual 2.0 tower late last year. In the meantime I've been using my wife's iMac. I just ordered a Mac Mini to (hopefully) replace an Apple TV.

My first Mac just showed up today! Love it so far. Thanks to this site I purchased a mac mini. What a great little computer. I went with the 1.83/1gb/80gb hdd refurb it didn't break the bank and don't need a real fast computer. Thanks for this message board. I learned so much!

Hello everyone,

I am a new Mac Mini user! Smile

It's my first mac ever, and i really like it. Especially the eyecandy of OSX! It totally blows away Windows XP in both usability, and performance. Also using it as a mediacenter is perfect. And I like the small size of it!

Hi!

I'm a long-time IBM/Wintel geek (started with an IBM PC in 1984) and just bought my first Apple, a 2.0 Ghz Mac Mini.

I'm extremely comfortable with Windows so I thought I would try something new to add a little adventure. Very Happy

I'm not an Apple fanboy and am not easily impressed. So far the Mini is interesting but I'm not wowed by it.

Setup was mostly typical, however, I was mildly impressed that it connected so easily to my router and existing Windows network.

Hello all! Just bought a Mac Mini after my PC finally died. I was tired of all the instability and virus problems on my PC so I decided to make the jump to a Mac. Plus I recently swithed to an iPhone and have been very impressed with the Apple hardware and software. Now I just have to learn all the ins and outs of the Mac world so I thought I would join this site for some advice.

Hello folks. I'm semi-nOOb on Mac (I used to have an iBook, but I used it mostly just as a web terminal) but a in August 09 I finally packed in my aging XP machine and bought a Mac mini.

I got a 2.26 Ghz Mini with 1 GB RAM that I upgraded myself to 4 GB. I got the one with the smallest HD (120 Gb) because the 320 isn't big enough. (I know that doesn't make sense, but wait for it...) I also got a 500 GB FW 800 external drive from OWC that I use as my data drive. The built-in drive is just for the operating system and an archive of software downloads. I also have second 1 TB external drive that I use only as a backup machine.

So far so good! I've had a few problems, but 99% of them are just a matter of getting used to the Mac way of doing things. (Seriously? Ctrl makes so much more sense than Command as a KB shortcut key because it's right at the edge of the KB. I cannot get used to pinching my fingers together in order to hit Command and X or C or V...)

Anyway, I'm glad I found these forums. I'll be poking around!
