So, afterall, what Mac would you suggest me? I'm currently between the "2.5GHz Mac mini" at 799$ with customizable stuff
2.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 processor
8GB DDR3 memory upgrade
750GB (7200-rpm) hard drive

And the MacBook Air, with only 200$ more, being 999$
I guess the MacBook Air is more worth it, but i'm not sure wether you can change parts or not. If yes, i go for that. Also, the portability is much bigger than the Mini's... Actually you will need a steady power source for the Mini... Though you need a TV screen aswell, or a monitor will do it too, while the Air has both...
In conclusion, what would you suggest me? (Don't think about the money, 1000$ once in my life worths it)

Look, im just a Signature....

And containing universe boot-up sequence...
Do not alter at ANY circumstances....
If you have any problems, please shut the universe down and restart....

why do you want a mac, why wouldnt a cheaper normal pc do?

also its not "once"
that mac wont last longer than other pcs, so you will have to rebuy stuff at one point

Well its hard to help you decide which one when we don't know what the intended purpose is.


For gaming, currently a MacBook (Pro) (running OS X or Windows) isn't necessarily the best as Apple only update the graphics card every one to two years. When they do, they typically use the latest and greatest (within reason) so buy a MacBook (Pro) soon after a refresh. Outside of a refresh cycle, try a non-mac laptop.

For general web browsing/email/etc, a macbook (even the NetBook Air) would be over powered so the best solution would probably be a large screened netbook.

For any development, I would suggest a MacBook. Why? OS X. In my opinion, OS X is the best platform to develop on: it being UNIX-Like and a Commercial OS with good commercial application support; and a well-thought-out development flow; it just makes development much smoother. Try getting GNU GCC working on windows or Photoshop on linux (Cygwin, Wine need not apply).
