I'd take OSx over windows any day personally. Anyone who'* used it knows it.
That particular MAC won't be upgradeable. Not internally anyway. Maybe memory and hard drive, but if you want to up the graphics or anything, you're probably *.O.L.

MOS: that form factor has been out for a long time .

You can use PowerPC to emulate OSX on a PC. It may not be fast, but it'* free, and if you need OSX on a PC, that'* the route to go. Once I get around to backing up all my crap on my hdd, or till I buy a new 200gb hdd, I am going to do this, and see what it'* like running on my main CPU. How much slower can it be? Watch it be like XP on a 386 . Sourceforge.net has it. Just go to their site, and search for it. A great group of guys who developed it. It was Project of the Month a few months back, I believe.
