Mac's and PC'S

  Bleep 17:25 18 Jan 2005

After almost falling in-love with the Apple Mini Mac, Could anyone tell me what would I be losing out on or gaining if I took the jump over to a Mac?

I'd still use my gaming PC, but in terms of uni work, web surfing and general use is it just a nice looking box or is there any hidden down falls to this possible transition?

Apart from having to buy new software and there being some difficulties with hardware upgrades, the machine will be fine for what you specify.

If you're keeping your PC for gaming use then the Mini Mac should be fine for your needs. As Diodorus says, upgrading can be a problem due to the compact nature of the design. Probably the best upgrade you could get would be more RAM when you order it.

As a student you might find that Mac software is available at a major discount - and of course the Mac Mini comes with software anyway!

It is certainly a tempting option with the faster chip, 80 Gig model probably the best value - with extra RAM if you can afford it.

I'm still wondering about the title to your question. Mac's what? PC's what?

Why the unnecessary apostrophes?

Yeah nice constructive input there Jackcoms. I admit if I'm gonna look for any technical support should I refer to my good old dictionary?? To answer Bleep though, I have both PC and iBook (thanks to some help on this forum enticing me to buy one) I admit the mac is perfect for uni work, web surfing and general tasks. Obviously the machine fails in the gaming stakes however, thats why I have a PS2 and XBox. I would recommend a mac no problems.
