Hi everyone. I'm seriously thinking about switching to a Mac for my main machine. My current setup is Windows XP, and whilst it's a good machine, it's now over three years old and I've already had one memory module go bad in it. I've used Vista for a little while on a work machine, and I hate it! Also, quite a bit of my hardware (especially my Nikon slide/neg scanner is not Vista compatible). I could update my existing PC. I've previously built my own PCs for the last nine years, and I've been using Windows since 3.1, but right now I just want something that works and I can use rather than tinker with all the time. So, I've been thinking about going Mac.... I've already got a nice 20" Dell widescreen monitor so an iMac would be wasting that. I'm also a bit concerned about the screen reflections reported from the new iMac in the MacFormat review. I can't stretch to the cost of a Mac Pro, although the specs are awesome. What do people think about getting a Mac Mini? They seem to be a good spec machine, and would be ideal for switching to a mac. Is it worth getting 2Gb of RAM rather than the 1Gb standard? I know Vista is a RAM guzzler, but what about Mac OS X? Is it worth getting the Mac keyboard and mouse, or can I use my own MS keyboard and mouse (USB) with the Mac Mini? Is not having a right click button a big thing to get used to? Lastly, should I wait for OS X 10.5, or is that potentially going to have issues, and I'd be better getting the current stable 10.4 Tiger? I've heard lots of good things about Macs. The handful of people at work who have them absolutely love them, and you guys here seem to have had good results. I'll probably have loads more questions before converting as to be honest I'm a bit worried I won't like it! I just know I hate Vista with it's high hardware requirements and incompatibility with existing software and hardware that I have. Thanks in advance. D.
