Weird how the intel updates are almost always 50%+ bigger.

That's because bigger is better! Razz

I'm all good here after installing the updates. But what I want to know is, when are they going to give us the 10.5 update? That's the one I want.

Maybe Apple just loves to make bloated code?

They'll never "give you" 10.5, because you'll have to buy it. Wink

I hope they release a Core 2 Duo Mac mini (with better GPU?) by the time Leopard and iLife '07 ships. After seeing the speed difference in Handbrake for H.264/AAC encoding (G4 vs Core Duo), I have no choice but to upgrade. Very Happy

That is what I'm waiting for. Core 2 Duo, iLife 07 and Leopard pre-installed. Then I'll buy a new Mini. Plus my pockets are hurting from my recent purchases anyways Laughing , they need to recuperate.

Yeah, but it's Universal bloat! Razz

I'm like the rest of you guys. Just waiting on Leopard and iLife 07 to come preinstalled on a headless C2D Mac that costs under $1200. Come on Apple, let's move it already!

Oh yeah, all well on the update front here. Very Happy

What are you plans for your PPC mini after you go intel? Are you going to sell it or use it for storage? I have heard of many people going from the PPC mini to the Intel mini.

I'll probably give it to my cousin. She is in high school and still doesn't have a computer in house. I'm sure her mom will give me some money, but that doesn't matter too much for me. All students should have some sort of computer!

I did the update on my 1.42 ghz mini, 1.83 ghz macbook and 1.2 ghz ibook and everything seems fine.

As far as the wait for Ilife 07 and Leapord goes, I would consider an Ilife family pack for my household but don't think I will bother with 10.5. I keep reading everywhere that people are holding off on buying. I can understand this because it saves you $200. Now that apple is doing less frequent OSX updates I think we are going to start to see huge numbers of waiters.

Wow that would suck to not have a computer in high school. I use mine more than I thought I would need to. At least her first computer will be a mac!
