At $499 (= £266) I could think of a dozen uses. Unfortunately,in the
UK it doesn't cost $499, it costs closer to $650 :-(
Not quite so attractive - but still in range to be a possible new toy.
What do you Mac users think about the min config ? (Specifically, 256M
RAM; I'd never consider a WinXP machine with less than 512M - but I have
no idea whether OSX needs the same, or will function OK at 256M).
Similarly, disk space. How much is taken up by OS etc. before I start
putting stuff on there ? Is the 40G disk reasonable, or will I run out
before I know it ....?
While I'm asking questions .... can I share file systems between Win and
(oops - did I say "toy" ? I meant "new development and test platform")
