hahaha... yeah I do have to admit that it is pretty cool.
I bet Apple took all of their Cube parts that they couldn't get rid of and just re-purposed them. beigesmile.gif

You know, the specs aren't all that bad either for the size (and being a mac, the price is pretty alright to).

Cool stuff, I wouldn't mind having one if I had the funds.

Wow thats really awesome. As someone who is indesperate need of getting a new computer this is really awesome. The price is also great for someone with a limited budget like me. I sure would love to pick this up and all the other goodies for it.

my big question is can you play FFXI and Civ3 on a Macintosh?

Unfortunatly, this is a mac, not a pc. Whole different beast here, different hardware and software architecture. Which means that unless programs are specificly ported to a mac, they generaly WONT run. There are emulators on mac's much like linux that make it pretend its windows to run apps/games. But these are never a guarantee untill you find em and look at the list of apps/games the run for any you want to run.

This dosent mean mac's are bad, they are very nice machines. But they are generaly even less of a game machine than a linux based pc due to lack of games writen for it.
Now for just browsin the web, writing papers and general "home office" kinda stuff, itd be pretty killer. Beyond that, and you start to run into the limitations of mac not being compible with the monopoly of windows based pc.

Sadly i dont have much experience with windows emulators for mac. So i cannot say for sure what will/wont run right now.

I think it's known macs aren't gaming machines, besides the friendly Blizzard folks. Believe it or not, theres people that use macs for everything except video games.

I'd like 'em for music and graphic stuff my self.
