Yeah, so advanced they never freeze up.
I have a 3-4 month old Mac mini. Yesterday was the 1st day I listened to music CD's. At one point my Guns & Roses CD got frozen in Itunes.

People can blast Windows all they want.
My scanner which was pretty new did not have Vista drivers, not surprising it didn't have mac drivers either.

I just built (in the process of building) 2 quad core computers for less then it would cost to buy 1 similar Mac.

I would hardly call a CD stalling a freeze up. And, that is more then likely an issue with iTunes, and not the Mini itself.

The scanner did not have Mac drivers? Not surprising, as it is usually OSX that has the drivers built right in. Over the last decade I do not recall ever having to install one driver for any scanner, printer, keyboard, wireless mouse, or external hard drive for any Mac that I have owned.

Yes, you can build a powerful PC for less then the cost of a new Mac, but do not kid anyone; you can build a powerful PC for less then the cost of a new PC as well.
