I bought an iMac for my work computer this morning. I paced back and forth in the living room this morning, trying to justify the expense. I sat down and created a spreadsheet to see my purchase options. I wanted to go the inexpensive route by buying the mid-range Mac mini and a used 17″ Apple Cinema Display on either eBay or Craigslist. I realized that after buying a Mac mini G4, monitor, mouse and keyboard, I could spend a little bit more and get a 17″ iMac G5 with twice as much disk space, built-in Bluetooth and Airport Extreme.
The salesperson at the Apple store sold me on the Bluetooth mouse and keyboard rig. It’s gorgeous!

Look, Ma – only one wire!
