It appears to me that the Mac Mini is the only option other than the iBook that is a good buy.

Look at the release table from Apple;

PowerBook = 279 days old
PowerMac = 228 days old
eMac = 285 days old
iMac = 145 days old
iBook = 96 days old

If you go by the magical six month (180 days) window even the iMac is to close to a needed update to drop two grand on. $599+ is starting to look better and better all the time. Time for a little road trip to the Columbus, OH Apple Store.

are end of life products. We'll have to wait and see. You are right the Mini seems like the best deal. 180 days is a long time!

Tell me about it! I would never buy the EMac rumors are its EOL. The Imac is a little expensive. The iBook is alright and Powerbook is about to go G5. The Mac Mini is in the sweet spot unless require a G5.
