    Hi,
    I'm going to buy a Mac mini but I have some Questions about it
    so I thought I ask them here on GBAtemp.

    1. I think I'm going to buy the 2GB Mac Mini, Is nice and fast ??
    2. I heard that the mac mini can be connected to a TV and that you can record TV programs Ect. Is this true, If Yes how to do it??
    3. Can I connect my DSi with it (MAC adress) when the mac is using LAN cable Internet ???
    4. Maybe a stupid question, How long does it take circa for the mac to arrive after I order it ?? (I know it'll be send after 24 ours)

    Why a Mac Mini for me:

    - It's small
    - It's not expensive

    Already Thanks

    1. It's RAM is lacking...you should go for 4GB of RAM...processor is alright and harddrive is not that big
    2. that's not true
    3. if you can get your mac mini to host a local WLAN network, then it should work
    4. dunno

    the mac mini is small that's true...but it's not that cheap, so if you don't really need OS X you could go with a cheaper Windows PC

    I guess there would be some options on a Mac to act as a soft AP
    -If its wireless of course.

    ACTUALY, the Mac Mini is pretty much the cheapest computer that is faster than frozen molasses.

    well even if you don't want to build something yourself you can get OEM systems with a faster processor, more RAM, more HDD-space for cheaper...so if you don't want to buy it because of OS X...look for a Windows system

    The DSi does not have Bluetooth.

    When (If?) you get it, you can set up Internet sharing via System Preferences > Sharing > Internet Sharing.

    I've got my Mac mini for a few weeks and I'm really happy with it.

    Tried it but it says something about the user terms, and we have internet with the neighbors -_-
    so I won't do it
    ------

    I have an other other question now is there a way to load .exe files via an .dgm file so I won't have to dubble boot my Mac [​IMG]

    already Thanks

    Edit: No it's not for all my programs just for patch things and small apps
