Pros Tiny as hell, excellent dvd/cd, Mac OS X Tiger, ease of use
Cons Can get a little slow at times, small HDD
Summary I love my Mac Mini. I've had it for years and it runs beautifully with Mac OS X Tiger, which is one of the best operating system's I've ever used. Roxio Toast Titanium or 8 with Mac OS X and this DVD/CD Rom is a lethal combination. It just ... WORKS. And with a little digging, all the Apple software can be replaced. QuickTime for VLC Media Player; Play for iTunes; Open Office for AppleWorld/ClarisWorks; Adium for iChat. Awesome PC.

Pros Sooooo easy to set up and to basically use...I am the issue..not the mac....
Cons ...I miss my longstanding subscription to Rhapsody so still have my awful HP online until I can figure out a way to recover all my music....
Summary It's early but I suspect this could be love....despite my inability to tech it out...all posts have helped me tons...
Pros Small, 2 GB RAM upgrade, very quiet, beautiful design and sufficient power for home everyday use
Cons Graphics are not good for gaming. awful RAM location.
Summary This computer might be a very good idea if you only need a computer for web browsing, to type documents and/or discrete media computer. Don't expect this computer to be a suitable machine for media design, gaming or development, as is has many upgrade restrictions, instead consider the IMAC with runs on Intel Core 2 Duo.... A LOT FASTER !!!. I had 2 mac minis including the dual 1.83 and both worked great for me.
Pros very capable, compact, good for nearly everything plenty of included software, handy remote, has included vga adapter
Cons there's no room for expansion and upgrading. the speakers are crappy. also, it isn't compatible with final cut studio. Finally, there's no included mouse or keyboard. it's pricey
Summary it's a great device but for the specs it's incredibly pricey. also, it's limited graphics can be a burden. However, if you're not a producer of graphic artist it is great. Web developers to common people will love this gadget.
