Kind of reverse of the topic, I owned a Mac mini for a while and although the interface is slick and cool, I found a lot missing! It comes with itunes and imovie and a iphoto, but if you just want to type a letter, no stock app for that! unless you Buy MS Office or the iworks suite. Apple Quicktime plays .mov and qt4 files but it can't play mpg, wmv, or most avi! I had to install VLC (opensource) for an office app I installed Open office (again opensource) I tried to import mpg and some HD files into imovie and it couldn't see them! I even scored a copy of Finalcut Pro and it wouldn't import them either! I ended up using a lot of opensource applications to round out the mac's capabilities. I ended up going back to my dual boot PC!
