    I think I found a 2010 mini for $400 that I am planning as running as a media server. I'll move all my iTunes music and movies to it and use it as an always on server to stream to my ATV2. I don't see any reason not too pull the trigger on this. It seems like a fair, and maybe even a good price and the machine will do what I want. I thought I'd wait to get the money for a new mini, but without the optical drive, and with me still needing to rip dvd's I think this could be an even better solution. Any reason not to pull trigger on this?

    Seems like a great deal. I can't think of any reason not to pull the trigger :)
