I agree with Chipp about the memory footprint, but I'm not concerned 
about configuring the beast with a wireless keyboard/mouse from Apple. 
You can buy those goodies far less expensively from other 
manufacturers. A friend of mine called me yesterday and told me that 
he'd configured a new Mac Mini with a monitor, keyboard and mouse and 
brought the whole package in for just over $600.

What this does,l I think, is allow people to get the elegance of OS X 
without paying excessively for Apple's (superior?) industrial design.
