So I really need to replace my current HTPC and I'd REALLY like to get a mac mini for the job. My current box is a celron based system, which worked fine while I had a 480i set but now that I have an HDTV and want to stream HD content, it struggles. The system can barely run XBMC @ 720p and even trying 1080p is a joke. So are the current mac mini's able to handle 1080 content without skipping a beat? All of my media sits on my linux server and streams over smb/afp, all I would need is room to store DVR content and that's it.
