Yes, but then you would still need the 3200 DDR 400mhz RAM as the imacs are very short in the RAM department as well. The real problem is that we are used to PC 100 / 133 RAM at great prices and now these take a new chip that the price has not dropped much on. > For all that it would take to bring it up to fighting trim, one could > almost buy the G5 iMac. --Steve These 3200 chips cost some hefty dough, but wait 3 years and let the Windows world catch up in the RAM dept a bit and the market may get some economies of scale for the price drops we want to see. This little mini is cool but a couple years behind the times - G5 s kick the pants off this, but for general use or small servers the G4 is excellent and you just cannot beat the price. This, IMOP, all stems from the itunes/ipod/music store combination that is hauling Windows users to the Mac - happily instead of kicking and screaming. Microsoft will really need to do something spectacular to keep their majority market-share intact. It only takes a few years with the right competition to lose it. jj On 12-Jan-05, at 3:15 PM, cube-request at listserver.themacintoshguy.com wrote: > Mac mini take apart clues > To: "A place to discuss Apple's Cube." > <cube at listserver.themacintoshguy.com> > Cc: "A place to discuss Apple's Cube." > <cube at listserver.themacintoshguy.com> > Message-ID: <email@example.com> > Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" > > Ah, so!
