The question with computers is always "spec'd to do what?" Game, Development, Office, Video, Sound, Web surfing, Storage?
If you have to pay for the OS do you have to pay for the other applications e.g. Office, Photoshop, HL2, etc?
The MacMini has one hell of a software bundle which covers pretty much all non-gaming tasks (but so does linux).
I think that a geek could argue themselves to 100% in this task no matter what PC they spec'd.

You should always optimize for the most score.It's strictly paper specing, which always seems fruitless. The guy doesn't dictate if it's an office or gaming machine, so I was figuring going for gaming, just because It's basically get the cheapest with the biggest specs. That's why I'm going with off brand crap for the most part.
