an equivalent processor (only a 1.24Gig CPU)
I could do more for less than $499 (plus tax), ... (I already have two old monitors)
How can people do without floppies anyway? I could fit all of my even marginally important digitized documents on maybe three of 'em (uncompressed),
And if I needed to I could physically destroy the damn things easily thus protecting what few secrets I might have -- and because the only hardware loss would be the pennies-a-piece floppies I wouldn't have to think twice. (Can you unrecoverably delete all the data from a USB flash pen?)
but regardless, i said athlon thunderbird. the 2200 uses a palomino or a thoroughbred core.
have you even built a computer before?
you forgot the cpu fan
hard drive (SATA), CD-RW drive
PC2700 RAM will run you more like $60, for example
also, i defy you to find a $35 motherboard that incorporates a built-in sound card, a video card comparable to a 32MB 9200, network adapter, firewire, 2x USB, DVI-out, and a modem, all of which come standard in the mini and at higher quality.
whereas if you build your own PC you'll have the pleasure of dropping another $180 on WinXP
as well as programs to replace the other standard apple software -- and none of it will be integrated
and, lest we forget, the PC you build will be a hulking beast
try again. by my math, you're still way, way behind on this one.
i'm typing this from my powerbook and i honestly have no idea what you're talking about. i just checked, in fact
i have no idea why this annoys you, especially given that it saves valuable screen real estate
as far as usability, OSX actually has a standard menu for each program that contains a predictable set of options
have you ever used OSX?
there's an eject hotkey, an eject button in each finder window, it's in the contextual menu, and you can do the trash thing.
