Hi there... been looking at getting a desktop system I can leave "in country" when I go on leave... Ive got a netbook which is great for travelling and carrying but Ive got access to a proper size keyboard and LCD screen... Ive hankered for a small portable system for a while and seeing that Im only living in a small place I dont want it to take up too much room. Both of these systems have reasonable processing power and memory storage so playing games shouldnt be that much of a problem - unless you lot out there can tell me otherwise. Ive used MS and Windows for all my PC life so never really played on a Mac.. .but Ive heard that they are really reliable. Also I use MSN Live and Skype... can they be installed on a Mac with no OS conflict ? Any help would be greatly appreciated. http://www.apple.com/macmini/ or http://event.asus.com/eeepc/microsites/eeebox/en/specifications.html Cheers !
