What do you guys think of this?

I have been thinking about picking up one of these just to use for surfing the web and such. I am going to put it on a KVM switch so I don't have to buy a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Come on and discuss this with me. I have always hated MAC's and I am not quiet sure now that I sat down and thought about it. I think it is just because they are so expensive. so tell me what you think?

If it wasn't for the OS, I'd buy one. I think that's the coolest piece of hardware Apple's released, next to the new iMacs that are built into the FP monitor.

But I hate the Mac OS.

One of those might be in my future though, once I get more comfortable with Linux.

I like MAC's good stuff. I still have an old Dual Processor G4 (500mhz processors) I was thinking about getting one of these but it does not have an ADC connector.. so the Apple LCD Displays are worthless with them without the $100 adapter.

You could build a way better x86 box for similar cash and actually use it.
