Default Don't forget the mac mini

The mac mini sells for $699 US dollars, witha dual 2.4 ghz processor, 2gb's of memory and a 320gb hard drive.

More memory can be added and a larger hard drive as an option.

The mini's are great machines. Mac OSX is extremely virus resistant and ships with tons of free, useful software.

I've been using mac mini's for several years now, and have hooked up a number of my clients with them for their families.

Obviously a mac mini isn't a "Mac Pro" or a high end Imac which is aimed at professional users, but it wasn't so long ago when the high end "pro" macs were no more powerful than the current mac mini.
