    Hello, everyone.I was looking at the mac mini's online at apple's web site, And i noticed that they have HDMI out. I wanted a Media Center type computer for my led Tv, Dell also has a computer some what similar just bigger. i would like to be able to watch Hulu on my Tv or Comcast online on demand,And surf the web. Will the mac mini display a good enough picture to watch on my led Tv via HDMI? Thanks!

    Your TV is only 1920x1080 and Mini can drive up to 2560x1600 monitor, so yes, it will be fine.

    So, All i have to do is plug My Mac Mini in to my TV via HDMI and good to go? Will i have to hook up cables for sound? or will the HDMI connection do sound to?

    HDMI will carry the sound.
    I have a mini hooked to my TV via HDMI and it works great

    You could use the mini's built-in speaker. Watch out for those eardrums, though!
