One of these days I will get back into the Mac world where I belong. I don't know if people will buy the new mac minis announced today, but they sure do look cool, and only 500 bucks. I am also a proud new member of the Ipod community, but if I wasn't, I may have considered one of the new flash-memory Ipods (only 100 dollars). Because of class, I am helped by having much more of my CD collection in one place at a time than this allows, but I think most people could use a 128-song player to carry around. Change the songs whenever you are at your computer.
