I want one

Ok I went to Best Buy today and played on a Mac mini. I want one. Wow what I cool little machine. I like how everything just runs smoothly. I don't know which model I was on though. And I don't know if it was a stock unit with the default specs. The only thing that I did not care for was the mouse. The keyboard was ok. I like that it has 2 usb ports on it. My scanner and printer will work with it. I might have to get a KVM switch for it. Maybe be the end of the year Apple will have updated the Mac mini with better specs. That would be cool. Maybe offer 512 Megs of ram instead of 256 Megs. And bump up the hard drive space. I want one.

Art of the Saber

A light saber fight sequence with the flavor of a Hong Kong martial arts action movie. This short is set in a dense forest of an unknown planet, where a young Jedi, eager to fight to help the Revolution, clashes with a Sith Lord in a battle where only one will remain standing.
