I'd build my own machine too for all the reasons already given. (in fact, I already did.)
But to be fair to Apple, nothing you can build will ever be as cute / compact as a Mac Mini, and the Mac Mini will probably be worth something in 5 years time, whereas your own creation will be worth approx $0.
The only reason I'm comparing it to the Mac Mini is because of price point. I already have a great monitor and the Mac Pro is way too expensive. I am just fine with a mid-tower computer.
Please let me know about what you think about my parts list.
