It's a better deal than the best G4 model.

Nicely done. By the way, if you happen to have a cable/satellite box with FireWire output, use iRecord (http://www.ammesset.com/software/irecord/index.html) to record HD content for free with just a FW cable connecting the box to your mini. You'll need VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/) to watch, and the software isn't the world's most ergonomic, but I've found it to be fantastic when wanting to preserve HD content.

And the whole "free" thing is good, too.
