"The Mac Is Great"5.0 starson by Jbit2
Pros: Compact, uses little energy, CAN be hooked up through HDMI and on one cord, Microsoft Office available as well as OpenOffice.org , a virus free choice
Cons: Limited gaming software for the MAC, but this has been the case forever.
Summary: I bought an HDMI adapter from Radio Shack, hooked it to the enclosed adapter and and using my HDMI 22" TV, Vizio for my monitor. NO two cords. The CNET report seems a bit PC biased.
The picture is perfect through HDMI. It has been error free for me and I really enjoy the ability to just log on and go to work.
No worries with virus attacks or buying and upgrading to the newest virus protection. The MAC OS Snow Leopard is a version of Unix and quite safe and gives the owner peace of mind. Something you never get with a PC.
As far as card readers go, I use the one on my printer without any problems. Insert the card and the MAC Mini reads it. No worries.
I have no regrets leaving the PC world and think others should do the same.
