MacIntel mini

My first 48 hours with the new Intel CoreDuo Mac mini have unfortunately been somewhat disappointing. Don’t get me wrong—The mini itself is great, I love Front Row, and the fact that I’ve got an optical audio out built-in instead of an Edirol box hanging off the side of the mini is amazing. (BTW, if you need an optical mini adapter for your TOSlink cable, I highly recommend going to Radio Shack and disappointing their salesmen with the purchase of their 98¢ Mini Plug to Toslink Digital Optical Cable Adapter (15-1584))
