Found this on best buy: Core Solo (not the fastest, but SSE3), GMA 950, only problem would be wireless but a dell 1350 for $20 on ebay should do! What do you think? It looks like a Mac Mini Solo with DVD writer and screen to me... No bluetooth though.

If you're going to spend that much, you might as well go another $50-100 and get the Dell Core Duo E1505 for $659. Comes with a free printer, GMA950, etc. It's another fantastic choice overall, and with the Core Duo you'll be sure to maximize the usefulness of OSX and whatever else you might choose to put on it.


For $49 more you can add the ATI X1300 with 128MB of discrete video memory, but seriously, if you're not a gamer (at least a really serious one), the GMA950 is the one to stick with, even with the shared video memory.


By the way, the link in your posting is incorrect, it's this one:
