Mini-Size Me

budget PC
CNET's rating: 7.2 Good
The good: It's the first sub-$500 Mac; compact; whisper quiet; includes iLife '05
The bad: Meager memory allotment; peripherals add up if you don't already own them; case can't be easily opened; slow hard drive; only two USB 2.0 ports
What it's for: Basic home tasks such as sending e-mail, browsing the web and editing photos

Street price: $499
