Apple have launched 2 new mac minis. I have wanted a HTPC for ages and this look to fit the bill. I was looking at the faster one and attached a couple of USB drives and get rid of the NAS. The Mac book pro should arrive within the next few days so I think they will be quite good together. Anyone got any opinions? ---------------------- The new mini sports the Apple Remote with Front Row, up to 2 GB memory, Intel GMA950 graphics processor, DVI connector w/ VGA out option, Slot loading optical drive, up to 120GB hard drive, built-in gigabit ethernet, analog and digital audio, USB & Firewire ports, iLife '06 and Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. 1.5Ghz Intel Core Solo Model: $599 1.5GHz Intel Core Solo processor 2MB L2 Cache 667MHz Frontside Bus 512MB memory (667MHz DDR2 SDRAM) 60GB Serial ATA hard drive Combo drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW) Built-in AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth 2.0 Apple Remote 1.66Ghz Intel Core Duo Model: $799 1.66GHz Intel Core Duo processor 2MB L2 Cache 667MHz Frontside Bus 512MB memory (667MHz DDR2 SDRAM) 80GB Serial ATA hard drive Double-layer SuperDrive (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) Built-in AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth 2.0 Apple Remote All Mac mini models also include an integrated Intel GMA950 graphics processor with 64MB of shared DDR2 SDRAM(1), 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet, four external USB 2.0 ports, FireWire 400 port, optical digital and analog audio in/out, and built-in mono speaker.
