Depends on what you consider to be a "big disk".
If the price point really is $499, which really would be the amazing part coming from Apple, then I would expect at least a 40 gig. Of course I would prefer an 80 gig smile . Time will tell...

These days, even 80GB isn't very big. I can't remember whose law it is: "As computer storage grows larger, applications will grow proportionally larger."

Maybe it will finally have a PCI-Express port.

I should stop drinking, I know :duh:

Anyway if it hasn't at least an AGP port the machine will lose a lot of its potential.

Edit : Oh, you were talking about the hard drive, sorry :shiver:

40 or 80GB would be plenty. It would be fun to set up NFS and give me a little experience doing some OS X admin. If it looks good on the telly then that would also be super -- it would be like having a MacMAME console! Of course this is assuming it's going to be pitched as a set-top box. I'm betting it wouldn't be easy to make the DVD-ROM region-free though. Can't wait to see what MacWorld Expo yields in the way of announcements.

Only when I see the stuff on the Apple site. Although I would love to give you props for being right on this one.

For all you now, Steve is a big MacMAME fan and spotted Nathan's little post. He though,"Hmmmm.... it could work." So, it's not that Nathan was right, I think he just got lucky. :p

Or conspiracy theory: Nathan = Steve Jobs.

Anyway, I'm still reeling from a New Year's bash so Happy New Year!

But doesn't that contradict that Nathan was pretty anti OSX until recently?
