i thought of that as well
 
 i also bet there is some kind of problem with the early mini macs
 
 but the cube was just a different shape, this is actually very small and could be put away, with a wireless mouse and keyboard and a flat screen it would be great

I guess this has a purpose.... throw away the beige box with evil inside, but keep your monitor, mouse and keyboard. It needs to be marketed that way. I wonder if apple could grab some market share if it does this well......

It's clearly an enterprise move in an attempt to capitalize on your iPod/iTunes marketability.  
 
 Take the cheap machine and add an office suite (of course, you'll have to throw an i in front of it, so AppleWorks and make it iWorks) and see if you can make a dent in enterprise solutions.  
 
 It's probably a few years over due, but a good business move.  Of course, it's not innovative in the slightest.

is that as good as a regular computer though?
 
  does it have the same power and capabilites as a regular Apple?  or is it a big Ipod you can pretty much just watch movies and download music on?

Yep, its just like an imac or ibook without the screen, keyboard and pointy thing.

It's a full fledged computer using a G4 chip instead of a G5 chip.  Not as powerful as the high end machines, but it doesn't pretend to be.  It's marketed to do basic multimedia computing (music library ripping/download/burning) and desktop office tasks.

Make her get her own, get yourself something really innovative like a TiVo.

what does she try and do on it that is so slow, I still use a G3 for all of my music purposes, it is not fast by any means, but it does the job nicely

Yeah, what speed G4? It might just need cleaning up, re-installing the OS..... It might not be super quick, but it should not be as slow as Econo.
