Wife’s Mini

Today I decided it was time to go out and get the new setup I been promising the wife.

First I stopped at the old apartment (in the process of moving to the new house right now) and grabbed her 17″ LCD

Then it was off to At Computer in Cardiff where I got her the Mini:

Mac Mini
PowerPC G4 1.2Ghz
512 Mb Ram
40Gb HD

Then I was off to Ikea .. there I bought a Pink Desk and a Pink Chair 😉

Here is a pic of the whole mess when I got home (before assembly)

The box contents (Mini, PSU, VGA Adaptor, Power Lead, Manuals & Ilife 5)

A picture of the mini on top of my G5 .. here you can really see how small it is

And finally, the whole setup is complete

(with flash, one sees the real colors of the desk)

(no flash, better picture, but desk looks red)

I loaded up iLive5 .. I must say, it is slower than the G5 .. but then again, 1.2 vs Dual 2.5 .. makes a difference

But in general, this is a great machine, a regular user would not need anything more, I am sure Sally will love it once she arrives from FLA 🙂
