Check this out: If you buy the following: 17" MBP with 100 GB 7.200 rpm. drive and 2 GB RAM' Core Solo Mini with 2 GB RAM and 8x DL superdrive, Mighty Mouse and keyboard. The MBP is $3099. The Mini is $1027. Then you buy a 2.16 GHz Core Duo and a 100 GB, 7.200 rpm. 2.5" HDD and put both in the mini, you have a Mini that is just as godd as the MBP, just as a desktop. You need to include a godd 17" monitor into the price, but that's small stuff. Now, the only remaining problem is the graphics, is it possible to put a 256 MB X1600 into the mini? And how much would the mini be after including 2.16 GHz core duo, 100 GB HDD and an X1600?
