They're really great, but they're so great that even having the Mac mini is good enough for my purposes. I used to want one until I found out you don't need to have specs as good as a Mac Pro unless you're doing something like video editing.

the best mac.. is a hackintosh.. but they're illegal so wait till January for the new Mac Pros to be released (they're releasing new ones then so don't waste your money now because it will be outdated in 3 months).

iMac is good. I don't like the Mac Book though, it got that crappy GMA. Mac Book Pros are too expensive for me.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, it's a crappy integrated video chipset put into the low end iMac, Mac Mini, and Mac Book. (bold for grouping)

It's actually no longer available in any iMacs ever since they dropped the 17" :lol:
