    Is there a way to control my Mini with my MBP and or Ipad?
    I am going to use the mini as a media server and feel that buying a keyboard and mouse would be a waste of money. Apologize if this is a repeat thread.

    I use screen sharing all the time from my MBP to Min since the Mini is in another room and I do most of my downloading on just that machine. Works like a charm. ;)

    Screen sharing would only work computer to computer corrent? Would need 3rd party app to do this with an ios device?

    Yes, you do need to turn it on first. You need to connect a mouse long enough to do it.
