Why no Apple? They're all Intel chips, now, so if you want Windows it's no problem...

The mini is in no way triple the price of the computers listed in this thread. Heck, the first price on the Fragbox configuration page was about $2,500, but maybe I'm not looking at the same thing.

That AOpen is pretty nice looking.

I would get a mini and run duel boot XP on it. I have my mini configured that way even though I run OSX most of the time.
