hmmmm... mac mini bit the dust?.... I was thinking of getting one but I am torn between the future imac and the mini.... I keep hearing different things that continue to make me wait on the purchase.... How old was your mini ?
Mine was just shy of 2 years old. The Firewire port went bad and then things got worse. The only to fix it is to get a new logic board = over $300 ouch. I will either get a new one or make one...still deciding?
2 years... that is terrible... macs in the past were built to last for a very long time... I have G3's over 15 years old that are still working and even an ancient performa that is much older... G4 still lives... G5 still my main production machine... I have Reason 6.5.3 on a 2 year old macbook pro because of the lack of support for PPC.... I keep hearing so many conflicting stories about the new macs, so yes.... still deciding. Seems every time a spend major money on a system that seems solid and safe to buy, the companies involved drop support for the model shortly after. This happened with an old UMAX PPC mac/windows frankenstein machine and my G5... so twice bitten... twice shy.
