Just so you know, Freepay has updated the stats on the Mac Mini it is offering (to go along with Apple's update today)

supposedly its about 2 to 3 times faster. It also comes with their new software media player/organizer software. I think it's called Front Row or something.

I guess theyre saying 4 times faster.

Up to 4x Faster
Powered by the Intel Core Solo or Intel Core Duo processor plus a whole new system architecture, the new Mac mini delivers up to 4x the speed of the previous model. (2)

1.5GHz Intel Core Solo processor

2MB L2 Cache

667MHz Frontside Bus

512MB memory (667MHz DDR2 SDRAM)

60GB Serial ATA hard drive

Combo drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW)

Built-in AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth 2.0

Apple Remote

Put on a Show
Use the Front Row interface and Apple Remote to browse through all the music, photos and movies on your Mac mini from the couch across the room. In addition, Bonjour sharing now makes it possible to access shared music, photos and video playlists from other computers on your network.

Only with the Duo CPU. The Freepay one is the single core

So 2.5 times faster, supposedly.

Excellent for a $700 mac.

yay, I can be an Intel beta tester for Apple for only 10 referrals!
seriously though, I've been curious about the intel Macs since the rumors were going on, this makes it easy to take the plunge. It will be a more worthy companion to my G5 than my current home theater 'rig' which is a 450mhz G4 cube. poor guy can barely keep up with xbmc...
anyhow, great form freepay! that was a super quick turn around on that! Awesome! Any possibility of a coreduominimacs.freepay offer though? hmm?

Hey wait a second..... when FreePay changes their gift to match what Apple is providing, it's okay. But when they change their gift to match what Microsoft is offering, people think they're still entitled to the old gift? ;)

do you mean the pack without the remote of the 360? wasn't that a limited time offer?
