That's outrageous. 1 640gb hard drive. I could raid 0 2 750gb with 2 1tb's in raid 1 for that price. Just get a nehalem base...

Build an i7 system for the same price as a mac mini with 6gb of ram, a nicer video card, a nicer hard drive, and over clock to 4ghz and your in. Oh and also run MacOSX.

Re: BIG performance issue on MacBook

Your hard drive is killing your performance hands down. Please go to www.newegg.com and get a western digital scorpio black 7200 rpm drive. I guarantee much better performance
