I don't know, Edwin. They're cheap PCs, after all, and clearly the buttumption is that cheap Macs can't do so - and PCs are inferior.
But twice as fast CPU, faster video, faster optical drive, faster USB interfaces. I don't think the system bus is slower, either; the Mac Mini is 167MHz, the Quicksilver G4 733 is 133MHz. Plus the Mac Mini has twice the L2 cache, and the 733 Quicksilver doesn't have L3 cache so you can't bring that one up.
Hmm. My PowerBook is a 1.25MHz G4. That only applies to one model of PowerBook.
Again, 167MHz bus speed. The graphics performance is going to be better with double the VRAM and a better chipset, but the HD is much the same. Amazingly, graphics performance doesn't really make that much difference to audio, though perhaps I should explain that some other time.
Er, a Mac Mini is more than capable of handling expensive Firewire devices. Why would you need more?

On Fri, 29 Apr 2005 18:02:31 +0100, RichardK You can't understand the specs? Why on earth are you making an buttumption like that? Because you can't understand how to compare...
Edwin, I have a recording studio. That would be why I need it and why. And potential buyers of the Mac Mini include audio professionals (especially since Logic Pro can use networked computers for additional processing power, like Shake and the new FCP).
In other words, no, they can't, they never will be able to, and therefore, they're of no use to me and anyone else using Logic. They're also of no use to anyone using Shake1, or FCP, or OS X.
All this time, and still, you just don't get it.
