I dug up my old first gen Mac mini from back in grad school. I am not too tech savy but would like to use this for a media center. Particularly I would like to put all of my DVDs onto a external hard drive and use the Mac mini as the media center. Now I have recently gotten a iPhone 4s and iPad 2 so I don't want to invest much more, but it looks like there may be some possibilities with these??? The major thing is playing DVDs and I do not care about HD stuff. What are my possibilities and where should I go?
