Re: I'm at Office / Modern Equipment at Home

: Chuck: convincing me of the virtues of the
: "Modern Equipment" (the Mac mini,
: shown below) was fairly easy.

If you hadn't owned two "Mini's" you might have received an iBook instead, but then the kids would have been very jealous.

iBooks loaded go for around $1,100... Less than a watch. 50% chance you'll buy one out of your own pocket by the end of the year to commute with.

(It's a mad house A MAD HOUSE!!! to quote Charlton Heston)...

: If you want to try to convince my office that
: they should make the switch, for almost
: 2,000 users in five cities, bring us a
: truckload of these critters and we'll hope
: for the best.

When you're bringing in an iBook everyday to work to do serious work is when the cracks start appearing at the office.

The mini is the nearly perfect trojan horse...
