Still trying to clean my desk before I take pictures but here is my current setup.

2012 Mac Mini 2.3 GHz i7
16GB Corsair Vengence RAM
Replaced Main drive with a 128GB Samsung 830 (no second drive)
2x Dell U2412M connected to DisplayPort/HDMI
3TB Mercury Elite Pro USB3 drive for all my data
Drobo S USB 3 for more data
Drobo S FW800 for Backups

Little thing is very speedy. Makes a good replacement to my 2006 Mac Pro and uses less power. Been running 24/7 since 12/29 with a few reboots in between. So far so good. Pics soon.

- Mac mini 2.6, 16GB, Fusion Drive
- BOSE Companion 20 speakers
- EIZO 2402W monitor
- WD MyBook 3TB USB3

Macs:
Mac Mini (2011)
Macbook Pro 13" (mid 2012)
Powermac G5 (late 2005)

iDevices
iPod Touch 4GB (64GB)
iPhone 3GS (16GB)
iPad 1 (16GB)
iPad 4 (16GB)

Accessories
Thunderbolt Display
Magic Mouse x2
Apple Wireless Keyboard x2
Apple Magic Trackpad x1

Non Apple:
24" Samsung monitor
Samsung R510
2x Western digital external hard drives.
Sony headphones.
I do have an Apple battery charger off camera - but that's not really apart of the setup.

Thoughts?
That is a lot of Apple hardware. :-)

I am waiting for Mini to arrive but will run it with the following:

47" LED Vizio TV 240 Hz (1080p) or a 32" Sceptre LED (720p) TV via HDMI
2.6 Ghz quad-core Mac Mini, Fusion Drive, 16 GB RAM
3 TB Seagate USB 3.0 external HDD
Apple wireless keyboard
Wireless mouse (already own and use with PC laptop)
Probably will buy Apple Magic Trackpad

Will probably buy a dedicated monitor for it later on but mostly plan on using this as an iTunes/media server for the three Apple TV3s and 2 iPads that we own (I don't really watch cable so everything I watch is streamed/downloaded)

Thank you for the compliment. I'm never going to be truly happy as there's always going to be something I don't have if that makes sense?

Nice set-up too.

I want a retina 15" or a cMBP 15" and another Thunderbolt Display to complete the set-up; well, a set-up's never truly complete. :P

True, I started with an iPhone 3G. Loved that, got an iPhone 4, loved that got an iPad 2, then got my wife an iPad 2, then bought one Apple TV2. Loved that bought 2 more. Sold all three for what it would cost me to buy three new Apple TV3s. Also bought an Apple Airport Extreme router. Only thing that was missing was a Mac computer in my entire setup. I can't justify spending $600-1000 for a display so I am just going to use decent monitor or the TVs. I am not doing anything professional or anything so I am ok as long as the picture quality looks pretty good. My Laptop could output up to 1080p on my Vizio but struggled with playing video at that level. I put the resolution down to about 1600 x 800 I think or 900 and it is big enough to read everything from the couch about 10' feet back but still struggled with the video. I am hoping with the Mac Mini and the extra power and RAM I won't run into that issue. Looking at Newegg and Tigerdirect now for monitors in the 20-23" range for less than $150. Don't shoot me......I just dropped $1180 on the Mac Mini and additional RAM so not looking to spend a lot on the monitor that I will not be using all that frequently, mainly just when the TV is tied up with something on it. With the laptop I could just unplug the VGA cable and use the built in screen.

Nice setup! You have a lot of Apple stuff but I understand how it could get that way. I'm already planning my next purchase in my head.....probably gonna get an ATV soon which I will run headless, just to stream music to the lounge initially. (If apple ever add TV shows to iTunes in New Zealand, then I might buy an Amp with more HDMI inputs, so I can connect it up to the TV, but for now I'll just run it through the optical out.) I'm also tempted to replace my ESXi server with another Mac Mini......

Might remove the Samsung 24" and put the two iPads up on a stand, then that way only my Samsung R510 will be the only non-Apple product.

Yeah I know what you mean; thanks for the compliment on my set-up.

How can I improve my set-up?

You can always download TV shows other ways and then import them into iTunes on your computer and stream them to the ATV/TV. I do it all the time. Some shows may be harder to find than others but 98% of the time the ones that my wife and I watch I can find online. Most in .mp4 format so they are ATV and iPad friendly. Others I live stream convert on the ipad using Airvideo or I just convert the show using the same app. Easier than using Handbrake, just limited to 720p.

You laugh, but I had the exact same thought! I have to confess that I leave the safe door open whenever I do Handbrake queues on the Mini.

I got mine at the refurb store for $599. I felt that was a pretty good bargain at the time, and I've really liked having it. The Mini drives that resolution really nicely.

But don't you find the pixel density a bit low though?
