Just letting you all know that BYODKM.NET (http://www.byodkm.net) was launched today. It's a Mac Mini only site that would aim to cater to future Mac Mini owners.<br><br>Check it out!<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Reggie on 01/18/05 10:45 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

I fustrates me to see apple put out such a computer. The fact that they have stolen the idea from the mini-itx platform is down right poor performance by apple. please go to this web site to see what i am talking about. I love my mac. but his is just stealing. And the computers on this site are way better. All you need to do is buy the Mac OS. and your good to go. here is the site. www.mini-itx.com<br>I hope you all see what i am talking about. and steve jobs for that matter. Idiot. <br><br>
The Mac Mini is WAY smaller than ANY mini ITX PC on the market ... you don't know just how small until you actually see it.<br><br>Also, with the benchmarks coming out - it seems WAY faster than any Mini ITX that uses reduced MHz to accomplish the form factor.<br><br>Further, have you actually used a Mini ITX computer, they are painfully slow.<br><br><br><br>www.adzoox.com & www.jackwhispers.com
Sorry...but you are the idiot here. That thing is BUTT-ugly! Did you bother to read the stats on that thing? <br><br>AMD's low-power Geode GX processor powers the PIC, which is barely larger than the 3.5 inch hard drive inside its rugged enclosure. The PIC runs Windows CE 5.0, and the entire operating system and software can be reloaded or upgraded through rather clever secure BIOS technology, placing software maintenance in the hands of your friendly neighbourhood service provider.<br><br>The PIC comes with enough software for most tasks: a browser supporting Flash; email and messenger clients; MS compatible word processor and spreadsheet, and the ability to view images, multimedia files and several other standard document types.<br><br>For this kind of device specifications are secondary to other considerations - but we'll list them anyway. Memory is provided by a single 128MB SODIMM, drive space by a 10GB 3.5in hard drive, the processor is the 366Mhz Geode GX firstname.lastname@example.orgW, and ports provided are: 12V input for external AC adapter; VGA interface; 4 x USB 1.1 ports; 56Kbps V92 Fax/Modem port, and 3 ports for AC'97 audio. That's right - not even Ethernet, but for many people this will be their only computer, and there's always USB.<br><br>Unless you live in India, Mexico or the Caribbean, followed shortly by Russia and China, you won't see many PICs about. However we did spot one at CES 2005 - pictures of which are provided above. Or perhaps you might want to see inside. More CES coverage to follow...<br><br>If you "love your mac" as you claim, you would have seen the difference right away. Somehow I just think you are a troll.<br><br>

In fairness I think he was referring to mini-itx mobo based PCs not that specific computer which is designed for third world countries. Not that I am defending him as mini-itx pcs tend to be ugly and slow too but not quite that ugly and slow.,..<br><br>"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled." - Richard Feynman

Yes, and linked to Mac Observer's news. We believe in giving credit where it is due. <br><br>Oh, we even extract RSS feeds from news sites like MacMinute which updates every 15 minutes.<br><br>A similar post like this to announce the site, in another popular MacNews site, was closed lebelling it not a good idea to push another Mac site on that site. Amazing. Geesh -- talk about powertripping. As if BYODKM.net is a competitor. I believe that Mac sites should help each other. We are all in one community!<br><br>
