Hey, my aunt and uncle are considering a new computer. I told them not to get windows, to get a mac/linux computer if possible.
Anyways, I was considering this
Without any add-ons except probably the Apple Care Warranty.
OK, i have a few questions. Here goes.
1) Do you absolutely have to buy Apple's OS updates each year? Can't you just stick with one update if it does the job good enough? (Basically, I'm wondering if Apple continues to support older versions of its software and for how long)
2) Do you think the specs on the $499 model are good enough (and by good enough i mean will Mac OS X run comfortably)?
3) Will a normal USB 1.1 (that's what my aunt has) Hub work with it so she can use her keyboard/mouse and her printer, scanner and camera?
Anyways, I'll probably have more questions later that I haven't thought of yet. Any help would be appreciated!
Also, I'm going to start a poll asking if people think the Mac Mini is worth what Apple wants for it. Please don't start a flame war, as that is not my intention. Just want thoughts from people who don't feel like actually responding.
