I'm gonna buy a Mini Mac. Factory optionals are Internal Bluetooth, Wireless Ethernet and a DVD Writer... and you get MacOS X. I'd definately get 512mb RAM with it instead of 256mb RAM that comes default.

The only dissapointment is that it takes about 6 months (i'm guessing) for it to be available worldwide.

Seriously, the Mini Mac is the first computer that i've seen that solves every single issue with todays computing. Its small, its quiet, it does everything I need, its not an eyesore. Internal bluetooth is a brilliant idea. If I could buy it today I would.

On the software side of things, its comes with everything I need except MS Office (but you can buy that). I hardly play many games anymore so computer games arnt an issue.
Went to watch my first soccer game the other day.... Kaiser Chiefs vs Santos at the FNB Stadium Soweto (Soccer City). Great event, had a blast on a vuvulezu (sp?). 5 of us went to see the stadium and the crowed. The stadium looks smaller than it is... supposdly it holds 80,000 people... looks more like 40,000. An intresting crowed with a lot of reefer being smoked at that match.

Between the vuvulezus, the car hooter (dont know how they got that in the stadium) and the school bell.... (yes, a school bell... the one you shake, not the electric one) the idea is to make AS MUCH noise as possible when the ref makes dodgy decisions. Let him know your disgust. Other than that, I was impressed at the synchronisation of the different parts of the crowed with certain tunes and songs they were orchestrating. Very wierd... It seemed as though one chap (on his vuvulezu (fog horn)) would start some tune, then everyone would alternate at a different pitch. Very odd. Had to be there.
