You know your failing when you resort to doing things like this. The door to door salesman goes tech.

just so this thread might be useful:

i bought a mac mini yesterday. 1.4g with 1g of ram.

my g4 dual 1.25 = 3:45 for a frame
mac mini = 5.25 same frame

just so's you know.

i still think it's a useful device for the cost.

Cool..good to see some mini numbers with LW...does this sort of fly in the face of the notion that mhz only matters with LW?

what speed mini?

wonder how a G5 would do in that same scene?

The Mac mini probably works far better with LW, than on my ageing Ti powerbook, 500mhz and 16 meg VRAM.

According to the minimum requirements spec, Lightwave should not even run on my machine. But it does, fine. And truely,for the most part there have been very few display problems on my machine.

However, I am really looking foward to seeing what a five or six fold processor speed, and a 256megabyte graphics card, will do for my modeling and animation experience.
