But then you can't easily access the optical drive nor the infrared port for the remote. Wink


Agreed. You'd have to be careful with mounting in order to use the optical drive at all and forget the infrared....(important to some folks but not for me--I never use my remote at all).

I'm diggin' that monitor--what is that? Like a 50 inch? And I used to think a 22" was absolutely huge...lol


Thanks for noticing. It's actually a 37", but I use a body hair trimmer for the "Extra Visual Inch." Wink

This is of course the only way to display a Mac Mini. Shocked Embarassed

I only spotted the Mini after I'd finished admiring your LP12.... Smile

I reckon you can run two displays with this thing. One to DVI and the other with HDMI. Anyone know if that is supported?

It's not supported. The manual says DVI has priority over HDMI. Read page 8.

I don't like the looks of it at all and Dell's "green" voodoo marketing bs makes me wanna barf....

Of course the third strike is that it's Windoze....

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder Wink

I don't mind the looks. It isn't as classy or refined as the Mac mini, but not bad.

Yeah, that's a sweet looking turntable. I like the wood finish.

I'm actually going to sell it - if any 123MacMini members are interested in a turntable in the $3000 range, I'll make a special deal! Very Happy

This makes me want to get a PC again, not only for its looks, but also for the Bluray capability, and not to mention the HDMI output.

...maybe I should sell my AppleTV on Ebay and use this as my "AppleTV" by Dell. I'll give Apple some time and see how they respond to this competition.

These things are expensive in the UK - they start at £399 = $800. That's exactly the same price point as a mini.

Format the drive and stick ubuntu on it.

Can you sell the winshit discs on ebay?

...only way I sell Windows on Ebay, and Microsoft/Ebay doesn't take the listing down, is if you sell it already pre-installed in a hard drive; and be sure to clearly mention on the listing that people are bidding on the hard drive, not the operating system, but that it'll be included "free" or as an extra, etc... That's how I sold 2 versions of Vista, since those 2 computers got replaced by a Mac Mini and iMac; I just kept Vista Business and XP Pro incase I need to virtualize.

I don't like Linux that much for some reason, I think the OS Zonbu uses rocks though:

I wasn't really interested in buying one, but that's a bummer.

gos space is a poor example of a OSX copy cat. I know there are many linux fans out there I'm even a fan of linux but I think even though it's come a long way it still has a long way to go before it's ready to be mainstream. Ubuntu combined with Dell have done well in that regard, I think this new studio hybrid would have been better if it came installed with Ubuntu instead of Vista.
