I'm forming a love/hate relationship with my Mac Mini.
I've been video editing episodes of Knitty Gritty that we pulled down from the hacked TiVo.
I HATE that it takes FOREVER on the Mac - granted I LOVE that it is relatively easy and the software came with the system (really LOVE the "Free"), but it truly takes FOREVER! It takes me 5 - 6 hours to capture, edit, process, and burn 3 episodes of the show. Casey can do it on the PC in about 15 minutes, but the software he has right now is freeware and it stinks up the quality so... Mac it is for now.
I HATE that there are things I cannot find and get to with the Mac menu structure. I come from a PC and programming background and am used to being able to access my core programming - not so with the Mac - it's designed NOT to crash/break, etc and therefore I'm locked out of all of those options. I do LOVE that it is easy to use and I know the kids can't mess it up when they are playing on it.
Mostly what I LOVE about my Mac Mini is that it is very small and VERY silent. In a house that is very loud, both with living and electronic noises - silent is ALWAYS welcome.
I think I'll edit more tomorrow - right now I'm tired of waiting!
I'll keep you posted!
