Dear Folks:

I haven't seen the inside of a Mini in person 
yet, but I've been reading about them a bit. 
>From what I gather, a Mac Mini's performance is, 
as mentioned on this list before, akin to 
current G4 PowerBooks (though not the ones that 
have just come out, perhaps).  Getting as much 
RAM in these will certainly help a lot, too. 
Putting a hard drive in these has been described 
by some as
not for the faint-of-heart, but to me it looks 
about the same as messing around inside a 
PowerBook.   Best I can tell, if one goes slow 
they'll be fine.

Here are some links I've found informative that 
cover some of what folks here have been 
commenting on.
