    They took away dedicated graphics, start at a single Core processor, and increased the price by $100. Terrible.

    If you want to get a Mac now on the cheap, look for an old G4 Mini which should be around $300 to $400 in local retailers as they get rid of inventory.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking, looking for a slipstreamed one to get 64 MB on video card

    Part of the site says 5400 RPM HDD, another part says 7200 RPM, called them, it's 5400 , wouldn't tell me if it's a 2.5 or 3.5 inch HDD.

    Definitely 2.5". It's pretty much an eMac crammed in there, at least for the G4. 7,200 2.5" drives are rare (and I do have one, sucker...in my tablet PC; speeds things up a lot).

    And the power brick is more than half the size of the Mini itself. The brick for my G4 Cube is freaking massive.
