How could I not want one of these!?!?!??!
It’s a NEW, incredibly redesigned Mac Mini!
They’ve created a unibody enclosure, and reconfigured the ports on the back!
They are clearly shifting the focus of this small device to the people (like me) who use it as a home theater PC (HTPC). They’ve incorporated a HDMI port (with audio!) on the back!
I currently use an old Power Mac which is hooked to my projector and entertainment system. This Mac runs EyeTV, which recieves the over the air, high definition TV – all the TV I need. No cable. No monthly bill! Woo hoo!
I remember when I first built the system, I did the calculation that I could only justify spending the hundreds of dollars for the parts for the system if I kept it for 3 years. Only after that time would I start to realize the gain from not spending the monthly fee.
Now that I’m in the black from that original investment, I wonder how I’m going to convince myself (and my auditor) that I can make this additional $700 investment???
