    It's a better deal than the best G4 model.

    Nicely done. By the way, if you happen to have a cable/satellite box with FireWire output, use iRecord to record HD content for free with just a FW cable connecting the box to your mini. You'll need VLC to watch, and the software isn't the world's most ergonomic, but I've found it to be fantastic when wanting to preserve HD content.

    And the whole "free" thing is good, too.
