    Ok guys, I've been considering a mac mini since I watched the Keynote's months ago. Anyway, I'd pick one up today, but I don't know what use I could really have for it. To give you a run down, I have 3 PC desktops. Mine, which is a 3.0 P4 + misc things. A server for storing media for streaming to my home theatre, and my g/f's pc which she uses for the usual stuff. I have a Powerbook, but would like to get the mac mini also. Is there anything I could use it for, such as a media recorder or something for my television? For the people that have a mac mini, what do you do with it? I'll use it for the standard web browsing, but is there anything else I can do with it that I'm missing?

    -Thanks

    Home Theater :dunno: I really wouldn't grab a mini unless you have a need for it. I would save the money and just get a really nice display or something else worth while. :)

    I got the Mini for a less-than-power-user in the house. It will be fine for her, and 1000 less hassle for me to manage.

    The iPod is for me though. I almost got the 30gb Photo, but I decided fkit, and went back to the 20gb and used the extra money for the Monster FM/Power thingy.
