What I enjoy about my Mac is its reliability and looks, it might not be powerful but its like an old car, you know how it works and you take advantage of that.

Almost everything inside is covered in half a centimeter of dust but that doesn't stop it, unlike my laptop, which dies when there's a tiny amount of dust and is broken because of:

Hardware failure
Windows corruption
Anti-Virus corruption
Dust
(to be clear I have no idea if its just one of these or all of them or more Confused )

I put everything

quiet, looks, OS X, iLife, low power consumption, reliable

The only thing I don't like about the mini is the limited expansion. But I knew this when I purchased the machine. I'd like something in between the mini and the Mac Pro, in terms of size and price.

For me, numero uno is the OS. Unix underpinnings with a very usable GUI has totally made life wonderful for me. If I want, I can get geeky, dig down in the CLI and do what I want, but for day to day activities, the GUI is there to make life comfortable.

Secondarily, I think the core Apple applications, like Safari, Mail, Address Book, iTunes, and iCal plus a few 3rd party apps - NetNewsWire, TextMate all make computing easier and less frustrating for me.

I've been using my laptop for some time and now its broken i've relised what i have been missing on my iMac, i love it when i turn it on and it boots up so quickly and using safari is a snap Very Happy One thing i don't like is that iTunes 7 is so demanding on my Mac.

Oh and I forgot about Quicksilver. I couldn't do nearly as much as I do without it.

I put everything. However, there is also the Mac addiction that hits the wallet pretty hard, which is included with your purchase. Confused

I would vote for everything as well. Having owned Macs for so long, I couldn't imagine not having one. Of course one could vote for it's design and looks since nothing compares to the Mac's style, but there's so much more to like about it.

I said everything. I have been very happy with my Mac, and there is nothing really bad about it. Sure it doesn't seem to be the best at times, but for such a low cost computer, it gets me by with no complaints.
