This is a PRETTY good list of the pros and cons of switching from Windows to Mac OS X.
Quote from Clinton Forbes weblog:
Overall I couldn’t be happier with my Mac Mini purchase. I’m not misty-eyed enough to think that it is completely angelic and perfect, but it is a major step above using Windows XP. And unless you are a rabid freedom-fighter it is a step above any Linux distribution out there. KDE and GNOME are still a long way away from achieving the polish that Apple has delivered with Mac OS X. And the next release, with lots of nice improvements, is only a couple of months away…
I totally agree…Get a Mac mini cheapest model to get your feet wet…It’s the PERFECT entertainment centre.
I have also invested in a Elgato eyeTV, and I’m ditching my old CRT in favour of a projector, FrontRow is aboslutely WONDERFUL, I usually stream music from my PowerBook, I used to use an AirPort Express to do that, but using FrontRow is SO much better, I love the remote. And now I’m investing in a mStation Tower, so my NAD amplifier and my speakers are being relegated to the back room.
So that I can watch, and record analog and Digitral Terestial TV, especially DR2.
Mac mini the cheapest COOL computer on the market!
