For cost-savings, I think I'll make my very first Mac a mini.
Got a good quality 19" CRT I can use on it until I can afford a spiffy new widescreen LCD as well. (22" Dell for a lousy $300 is tempting!)
Any speculation as to the differences we may see on the new mini?
One I've heard is the update from GMA950 to X3000 (which is a VERY minimal improvement in the PC world, hopefully Apple does a better job with the hardware drivers!)
