    Hey Gary, How's the MacMini?

    Just curious about this - you had stated in an ealier post that you were going to buy one and test it out.

    I know you've been a busy boy, so this might be a bit early, but I just was wondering.

    Well I have one too... just arrived a week ago, 3 weeks after ordering from Apple.

    I'm happy with it, it's very quiet, though I'm still thinking of ways to integrate it in with the rest of my studio. My main DAW is still a windows XP machine which I also just upgraded.

    The Mac Mini Still has not arrived, but I did receive a notice from Apple that it has just shipped. Any day now.

    Well, holding my breath would be counter-productive.

    Just curious - what configuration did you get? How much RAM? You'll have to let us know when you have test driven GPO on it!

    Can't wait!
    Too bad about the 1GB RAM limit though...

    Gary,

    Could you please update us on how your Mac Mini is performing. I'm a PC user but I'm looking at possibly getting one so that I can work with a studio that uses Digital Performer.

    I can only afford the basic 512MB model, is this adequate for basic sequencing and recording half-a-dozen tracks or so? Thanks.

    Looper,
    I have not had much time to work with it. Between traveling and deadlines it has been sitting idle for some time. I don't think 512MB RAM is going to be enough.

    Looper,

    You can buy the orginal Mac Mini with 256 MB of memory at Powermax for $469 or Small Dog for $479 and a 1GB memory module for $99 from several online vendors. You or someone just needs a little know how and putty knife to open the Mac mini.
