Is Apple’s iMac Mini a good deal?

Apple released their new iMac Mini this week, which without keyboard, mouse and monitor is selling for $499 in its base config. For that you get:

  • 1.25GHz G4 processor
  • 256MB of RAM
  • 40GB hard drive
  • combo CD burner and DVD-ROM drive
  • ATI Radeon 9200 graphics chip (32MB)
  • FireWire port
  • 2 USB
  • Ethernet
  • a modem
  • digital and analog outputs for connecting a monitor

This seems like a good deal, and compared to other Macs, this probably is a good deal. However compared to a similarly featured PC, you could still probably get a PC for cheaper. But if you want an entry level Mac, then this is definitely the one to get. Plus compared to PCs, this is definitely pretty cool looking šŸ™‚
