The Mac Mini: Off my list

Example

Many Podcasters, myself included, have been salivating over the Mac Mini since it's release. Affordable, portable, sexy. Perfect podcast production machine right?

VERY WRONG...

Credit CC Chapman for bringing to my attention, the sadly obvious and glaring OMISSION of an audio in jack. That's right. Forget about it. Nice one, apple. What, couldn't afford that extra 1/4 inch of space in the sound card???

At least it's one toy I can scratch OFF my list...

  • I myself own a MacMini but never use a microphone so that never really bothered me. But if you really want an input and maybe a more pro enviroment, I would recommend iMic. Check it out http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/imic/

  • Jeff, Rafael, thanks for your feedback. Something inside me dreads using USB for audio input, but Griffin has always seemed to deliver quality on every front. If I can spend another $35 and have my Mac Mini, then so be it :-)

  • Yes it costs the same as the mac mini itself, however the digidesign mbox uses usb for audio in a pro enviroment. There is nothing wrong with usb for audio, esp. on Mac.

  • yeah, i use the mbox for my music, and its great. Writing off the Mac Mini for that reason is retarded.
