Yep, that's right... Today after work, I ran to the Apple store in the Mall of America and picked up a Mac mini. It's the first Mac I've ever owned and really the first Mac I've ever used (discounting playing around with them in the Apple store), believe it or not.
When the Mac mini came out, I honestly didn't pay much attention to it. I had no clue it worked with PC peripherals until today. No. Freaking. Clue. Guess I need to pay more attention to these things, eh? So, the second I found out, I was ready to order, as I had an extra monitor, keyboard, and mouse that I could use! Thankfully, I thought to compair prices with the local Apple store, and since it wasn't any cheaper to order online, I simply went to the store and picked it up.
Here are some quick specs:
- 1.42 GHz
- 80 GB hard drive
- 512 MB RAM
- AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth
- OS X 10.4 Tiger
Better yet, the company I work with was willing to buy it for me, so I could test websites I make for them on the Mac browsers (mostly IE/Mac, as things seem to work farily well in Safari, anyway). Can't beat that.
So anyway, obviously I'm psyched. Please leave any Mac tips you've got for me in the comments, as I know absolutely nothing about the OS. Looking forward to learning; and man, I love Safari!
