Dell Zino or Apple Mac Mini?


That is a bit of a tough one. The prices of these mini computers…and the choices one has to make to choose which one. The Mac Mini (pictured above) is going for S$788. It is running on Mac OS X Lion and from what I hear, the box is a bitch to upgrade. Apple just does not like anyone fooling about with the innards of their Macs and this one is no different. But it is a Mac and to some fanbois, that is heaven on earth but now…

This is the Dell Zino. I did a post about it some time back so you can see what it is all about but if you can’t, no worries. I will put up the link here. In any case, this Zino is way easier to play with and upgrade. You can change the hard drive and the RAM and it is way easier to take apart too, not to mention being cheaper. You get Windows with it too but if you do not want to go down Redmond way, you can always install Ubuntu Linux, something I would do in a flash as I think it would make a very nice file-server.
