intel Mac mini : “Yeah, I know!”

Just one additional thing today, which I should have posted some time ago: Yes, I have seen it, and I wants one.
Reasons why an Intel Mac Mini will not be Trouble 2.0:

  • The Mini lacks storage. (disk too small, disk too slow)
  • Too expensive. For $1300 I can get the whole system.
  • Buy a Mac, scrape off MacOS and never look at the pretty aqua desktop? Are you mad?
  • The storage expansion options are still too limited. No Firewire 800! Why, for crying out loud?

Rather, at this stage, Trouble looks likely to be built from one of theseexternal link. Power consumption will be higher than I would like, but noise, performance and price should all be well within tolerances.
