Mac vs Windows PC (BD-Design)

Has anyone got the last word on the Mac vs WPC debate for driving the
Twindac+?

With the Mac Mini, entry into silent running could be a viable option with
an external hard drive to transfer EAC and WPC converted CD?

As Anand sees it:
"Apple did a very good job with the mini. They effectively completed the transition of the entry-level computer into a commodity. To the average joe, the Mac mini isn't a computer - it's another iPod or DVD player, just a lot better and a lot more feature-filled. It's a DVD player that can edit and create DVDs, and it's an iPod that can make and play music, and it's a box that you can retrieve your email.

To the rest of us, it's a small, quiet, stylish looking box that finally breaks down the price barrier to Mac OS X. As a second system for any PC user, the Mac mini can't be beat."

But if you ask me, going quiet can be done very effectively with PC hardware. And since this is a much more open platform, there is equally more choice of components.
