I am very close to buying a Mini and I am wondering what others are buying and why? M uses are mostly internet and iTunes. I buy and watch allot of HD Tv shows and movies in iTunes. Occasionally I use a video ripping app to copy videos and that may be the biggest strain on the system. I hate the idea that FR is not included with Lion anymore and yes, I know there is a hack that enables it once again. I have also been looking into the idea of buying a used one on CL or maybe here in the forums so that I can have FR running natively. Disc size doesn't matter because I use external drives on all my machines. Thanks for any ideas.
