Wow! Talk about hitting the price point! For the price of a Mac mini, you can get a fully decked out Windows Media PC. Emachines is starting to sell an Athlon 64 3400+, 1 Gig of memory, 200 Gig HD, Dual layer DVD burner, 8-ini-1 media reader and Windows Media Edition for ~$600! (After a $50 mail in rebate, so the price is like $649). It’s got an integrated video card, but it’s no slouch, it’s ATI’s Radeon Xpress 200 chipset. I’m sure it will have either an AGP or PCIe slot for an external video card. I just hope the hard drive will be a 7200 rpm drive.
Now, I’ve got to find one of these, as a friend of mine needs a new computer.
