Yesterday I rang Apple in Seoul and ordered a New Mac Mini Duo for 845,000 won.
I then started downloading shareware and freeware apps for the Mac. So far I have 9 gb worth!
In Australia, Japan and the US (and probably the rest of the world), but not Korea there is a thing called Build to Order.
What this means is when you order a computer you can upgrade the RAM, put in a bigger harddrive, etc
So In Australia you can upgrade the hardrive from 80gb to 100 or 120gb!
More importantly you can upgrade the memory to 2gb so when it arrives it has everything you want in it. In Korea if I want to upgrade the RAM on the Mini I have to go the the Busan Apple store and pay them to install the RAM. This sucks!
This is why I will never buy a laptop from Apple Korea, because I always want the biggest harddrive on the cheapest laptop Apple offers. This is not possible in Korea.
I would have to go to Japan to get what I want!
The Mac Mine should arrive tomorrow and then I can begin playing with it. I will probably blow the entire weekend on it.
I want to use iDVD and iMovie to make a DVD about my life in Korea so I can send it home to my mum and dad.
In the next month I will probably upgrade the memory to 2gb and start running Windows XP on the Mac Mini as well.
