I have always been allured by Apple products - more for their aesthetic beauty than for their function - be it iPhone, iMac, iPod, iNano et al. Yes, Apple products usually cost the bomb to buy compared to similar products from contenders and we ordinary users may as well stay away from them if we do not want to splurge on gadgets. However, all things said and done, Apple products do appeal to most people's sense of beauty and they are getting popular as days go by.
One Apple product which has especially caught my fancy is the Apple Mini. It is small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, is compact, has almost all interfaces you might expect in a full blown PC, can be connected to non-Apple hardware peripherals such as keyboard, mice, monitor etc, and more importantly - it is priced in the same range as a PC which makes it quite affordable.
If you are curious what a Mac Mini looks within its Aluminium casing, your wish has been granted. Macminicolo.net who provide Mac Mini servers for hire have put together a photo op of the unveiling of the Apple Mac Mini.

However, anytime you ask me, I will opt for a PC over an Apple Mac for sure. But that is just me saying it.
