I'm a student with a mid-2007 Macbook. I use it for streaming video, playing VLC files, photoshop editing (once a month or so), and Word/email/internet. It's sometimes horrible with video streaming, but otherwise it does its job. My replacement should be able to do all of this and display two HD monitors. I'm hoping the Mini will last me at least 4 years with OS updates. I'm trying to decide between the low- and mid-tier Mac Minis: Low-tier (1.4GHz i5): I'd choose the 8GB RAM option and install an SSD myself. Mid-tier (2.4GHz i5): I'd install an SSD. Questions: Will the mid-tier option give me an extra OS X upgrade, 5 years or so down the road? Will the low-tier option power both monitors? Is there a good reason to drop another ~$120 for the mid-tier option?
