I bought this first generation Mac Mini second hand back in the spring of 2008.
It has a basic 1.25GHz processor and 40GB harddisc but I have expanded the RAM to 1GB, it likes that.
I have also installed Mac OS X 10.5, and I like that.
I should use it for photo editing, website editing,
some school work such as dictionary lookups, writing practice and maybe essays,
if I ever get to the point where I can concentrate on assignments when sitting at home.
I could also use it for playing DVD's,
but so far I mostly use it for surfing, emailing and such.
For those tasks it is fine,
as long as I stay clear of the Danish newspaper Politiken's website,
Tomato just does not have the computing power for that.
For the other tasks I should install something like Nikons raw editor
and something like the GIMP.
I have NeoOffice, a Mac branch of OpenOffice and it appears to work well,
but I have used it nowhere near as much as OpenOffice on
Not much more to say,
it is a beautifully designed machine on the outside and the inside -
though a proper harddisc would have been nice -
but it is as it is, and there is very little to change,
just a lot to use.
トマト or "Tomato" is the name on the computer terminal used by Radical Edward,
the superhacker also known as Ed,
short for Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV as she calls herself in Cowboy Bebop.
