    I will probably be buying a mac mini in the next couple of months to connect to my TV. I will be using it to play dvd's on, and access my media through frontrow. My question is, how long will it be 'til the mini is switched to core 2 duo?

    I have a feeling apple may be waiting for iTV, and even HDDVD or BluRay. If so, which will aplle adopt; HDDVD or BluRay?

    OR is apple completely re-designing it?

    Also, dos the current mac mini have a HDMI output?

    Cheers,



    Tom

    Well, since it's the last model left that doesn't have a C2D, probably as soon as MacWorld and no later than a month or two? But your guess is as good as anyone's...


    <<<which will aplle adopt; HDDVD or BluRay?>>>

    Apple has stated they're firmly behinf BluRay, but that doesn't mean they won't have dual support.

    Nope...

    You can just buy a DVI to HDMI adapter, if your TV only has HDMI.

    I would bet on them taking blu-ray, but don't wait for that. It will first be in the Mini in around a year or even later.

    If all you want to do is watch media, why don't you just wait and buy an iTV?
