Please help deciding factor.

I am planning on get Mac Mini w/ 512 mb ram, 40 gig hd, combo drive, blue-tooth and airport extreme card installed, wireless keyboard and mouse with OX 10 panther for $772 at then adding a Xerox 17 inche LCD flat panel with DVI connection at Costco for $269. Totalling roughly $1000. Is this a wise choice? I will mainly use it for Internet surfing and Photoshop 7. Your advise is greatly appreciated.

Is that Canadian bucks?

At roughly 1000, maybe you can entertain laptops or other models. The mini is not a bargain.

For that much money... Keep shopping.

Something's amiss with that price. Seems high and you can do better.

Try the MAC forums...

Apple mini

The concept of the mini was if you allready had a monitor
and keyboard you could get mini. If your are doing a whole system you may want to look at eMac before you buy. John
