    Ok,
    Im looking to buy something small I can slap on top of my TV to play videos & such. I was going to buy a mini to use with a usb remote & some software similar to Front Row. Was also gonna get a bluetooth keyboard & trackball to make me even more lazy. Anyone think besides the Intel chips, they are gonna add Front Row to the mini? I already know they are gonna release it w/ remote through iLife 06 at the Mac Expo but any chance on Apple beginning to bundles its boxes with remotes & iLife? I havent used a CD in 1 year & im almost finished ripping 100 DVDs or so & im anxious to get up & going. Everything is backed up of course. Who wants to stare at a stack of DVDs when they can just click a button & see a sample.

    I would wait. There are rumors of all sorts of neat stuff coming out at the Expo related to the mini as well as other stuff. It is so close. I would wait, but that is just me.:)

    I would wait as well. You know they are going to introduce some new stuff at the expo.(may or may not be a new mac mini, who knows?)

    It's only about 6 weeks until the expo if you can handle it wait, if not go buy one.

    MacWorld SF 2006 runs from Janaury 9th - 13th, so we're just over a month away.
