The only redeming thing about the system you linked to is that you can buy it without having to pay the Microsoft Tax.

Are you going to be more specific? What exactly is wrong with it? I genuinely want to know. And what would you suggest from the Mac lineup instead?

I'd also be interested in considered opinions about the itx that we are considering, if anyone is willing to offer serious comment on it, I'll supply the spec on that too.

They won't provide.

That is the thing with many Mac fans. A few weeks ago I had a discussion about buying a PC instead of a Mac exactly because of that.

No Mac with desired hardware configuration was available.

The Mac fans that were arguing with me, kept on saying that MacOS X was better, without providing any argument for the hardware.

And that is, for me, the current issue with Mac systems, limited hardware choice.
