Is the pipe organ voice a good reason enough to buy a mac? It's great, we all love it for different reasons...!

hi,
could I use mynetbook's monitor as output for my mac somehow? to display what is on my mac through the monitor on my netbook? I think I will get a mac mini. I like the pipe organ voice in voiceOver and that's the only way to get it is by buying a mac. Plus the way you use the mac is interesting to me. plus I hear you can install windows xp onto a mac useing boot camp.

Hi,
The Mini does not need a monitor plugged in. You don't even need a mouse.

I'm writing this message on a Mini with a keyboard connected, and it's power supply.

When I bought my mini, the mic and web cam were not important to have built in.

True the Mini does not run on battery but it's small enough to carry around the house, moving it from room to room if you have AC power.

Hope this helps.
Chris

The price you mentioned sounds reasonable but remember the MacMini is not a laptop. It's a very small desktop and it needs you to give it a keyboard, mouse, monitor, etc. As far as I know, it won't work without a monitor but I may be wrong. I'd personally recommend an iMac if you want a desktop or a Macbook Pro if you need a laptop. I also don't think the mini has a built-in mic or webcam like the iMac does.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [macvoiceover] getting a mac

hello
I found a mac mini for $450 on amazon with the latest mac OS leopard. What are the advantages of mac over windows? Do more applications work on the mac than work on windows? I also want to get a mac so I can finally use the pipe organ voice! I used a mac in Colorado and liked it. but I also like my windows machine as well. I have a windows xp netbook. I wonder if it would play nicely with the mac mini?
