'10 mac mini desktop by fediaFedia '10 mac mini desktop by fediaFedia
Just received a power adaptor for the mac mini a relative of mine gave me! :D

It's a pretty old model though, but I can't complain, first it was free, and second, it runs VERY fast for it's specs, I'd say much faster than my previous hackintosh with 3GHz and 1.5GB RAM. Nothings better than the real thing eh? :D

Currently serving as a internet HTPC on my TV

Didnt get to customize it much yet, but then again, I wasn't really into complicated OSX customization in the first place. The wallpaper is by manicho, mostly everything else is default. Probably gonna update it to snow leopard, aparentely it hasn't been used since 2008 o_O

Really looking forward to purchasing a modern Mac in a few years.

Comments are welcome!

Great shot. ;)
I don't see what's the fuss about.
Sure I wouldn't buy a Mac if I had the money but if it's for free I wouldn't let it go to waste.
I don't hate macs, I just hate the tech impaired hipsters telling me that "WINDOWS IS SHIT AND MAC IS GOD LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL" In fact I love the dock and I love some of the software. :)

I expected better of you. Really, I just couldn't have predicted you would have been sucked in the same rip-off as I was.

A Mac Mini was a waste of time and money and besides, the graphics card among the whole piece of hardware is just utter shit.

Have fun with word processing and web browsing because that's pretty much all you can do with that overpriced hipster machine.

Fyi I got this macmini absolutely for free, and unlike you, I'm satisfied with it. Also don't forget I have a laptop capable of playing Crysis on high, so crappy graphics arent a big problem.

I was using Google Chrome too, untill I learned about its user tracking and invasive [lack of] privacy features..
I've found a better alternative called SRWare Iron. Built on Open Source Chromium of which Google Chrome itself was built. Good stuff. but now its Iron & Firefox as ftw!

Wikipedia.org: Google Chrome usage tracking
Whats the difference between Iron & Chrome?

SRWare Iron Homepage

SRWare Iron supports Google Chrome Extensions, its just as fast and there is no user tracking what-so-ever.

To be honest, I don't know what the fuss is about; I trust Google with my info. I'd rather stick with the official release.

I understand, thas cool. The fuss is about Privacy and everyone's right to fully have it and have it untouched, at least what I believe. I dont however have that trust, not one bit. I'd never trust a corporation with my personal surf habits, search queries or surf history, let alone most anything else I call personal and for my eyes only. Call me paranoid but I'll just never trust a Corporate America.. ever.

I'm well aware of these tools, and I don't like them. CrystalClear is so unprofessionaly done it's practically the oposite of sleek OSX looks where every pixel matters, why would I need to color the finderbar if it's transparent anyway, and I changed the login window background. The last tool was a bit offtopic, thanks for the links anyhow

Hmmmm... its a bit hard for me to agree with the "unprofessional" comment considering all the work that has gone in to it and its easy to use interface, and also the fact that its free. I think it looks very sleek, I do not see any pixel problems anywhere and the themes the author put together obviously took great time and care, especially when he drew up the image files. Its no more unprofessional than the original OS X look if you ask me... because lets face it, that grey gets really, really boring after a while.

What's wrong with them? I find the OSX GUI a lot more eyepleasant than windows 7's.

personally I think Windows 7 is a lot prettier than OSX. I don't like the metallic grey, it gets really bland after a while. plus, as shino-inuyasha said, it doesn't support many games. Also, you can't get OSX on a machine that Apple didn't make. It seems way to controlled to me, and very overrated. Of course, I'm a big Microsoft fan, especially since the Zune HD and Windows 7, so I'm a bit biased. Still, congrats on the free computer :) lol

I dont like the looks of 7 at all, looks very unprofessional, especially compared to vista. And games, did you know Steam will be launching for mac soon? They'll have just as many games as PCs... And you CAN run a Apple OS on a PC. As for Zune HD, the only good thing about it is it's looks, other than that it turned out to be a epic disappointment for many, doesnt come near the iPod with it's appstore and soon to come iPhone OS 4...

personally I think the Zune HD outperforms the iPod, as long as you don't want apps. I never saw the appeal in apps anyway :) just my opinion

Appendage...

I like the Aero glass because it seems more artsy than the washed out metallic grey. And the new taskbar in Windows 7 is basically a variation of the OSX dock.

I can say the same thing about glass, it gets boring after a while, while Aqua remains very sleek and professional for a long time, that's why designer's 1st choice is always a mac.
