Hey, I'm getting a used Mac Mini to be used as a HTPC/FileServer that'll be used for the following: Movies, iTunes Server, VNC from iOS, Transmission Client (I'll remote in from iOS), Plex, Time Machine Backups of Laptops (I've been told server OS allows this with External HDD), iPhoto Library, Netflix, and possibly some surfing of the interweb... I think thats about it! It'll be getting hooked up to a HDTV so thats why I thought I should rule out the 2009 and earlier for convenience. Would the 2010 base model be sufficient for this? Or should I shell out the extra dough for the 2011? Looking at specs, it seems the 2011 is a good bit faster with the i5 processor. Any thoughts? Cheers!
