1) El Reg is one of the bastions for Apple bashing, so less of the ‘bigging up’ please.
2) I am (despite the monicker) not a great Mac fan, but the Mac Mini is a bloody nice computer. In this day and age I can give freelancer developers a good, fast (i7 plus 32Gb RAM) machine for around £1000 that beats a MacBook Pro costing over double that. Added to that I can lock all the computers up in a desk drawer at the end of the day.
Enjoy a downvote Sir.
