New Mac Mini
I'm gradually converting my family to Mac. This week I replaced our kids' Cappucino PC with a brand-new Intel Mac Mini. If you're a switcher like me, you should know that although the Mini comes with a DVI/VGA adapter dongle, it doesn't have a USB/PS2 adapter. So you'll need to pick up a USB to PS/2 thing like this one.
Of course the other thing we needed to do was stick some "essential" software on it, including Anthony's current favorite game and Piper's current favorite. And Firefox for Dad. And Google Earth for kicks.
The Mac Mini is a wonder of engineering. A couple observations.
I hope to try a bit of video editing with iMovie. So now I am waiting for Amazon to ship me a firewire cable to connect my GS150 with the Mini. Too bad all these gadgets don't just already come with the needed cables. I have a huge pile of old extra cables, but never the one I need.
