I was looking to purchase the current gen. mac mini (probably after this next refresh) as I am starting to switch our PC household to mac computers(we already own 6 iPods, a iPad 2 and 3 iPhone's and I wanted something that also worked better with photostream/iCloud). Here I go.... 1) If I replace the hard drive, will I... A) Still be able to restore lion(in other words, does lion recovery boot with a new blank drive) or will I need to image a CD with the LionSED.dmg(I own a external DVD drive) B) Have the iLife suite also restored to the computer or is it gone once you restore C) Replace the original hard drive and have it still be servicable by Apple(has anyone done this)? 2) Is the graphics on the baseline model good enough for basic iMovie and watching a iPhoto slideshow withouht any lag? 3) Does the mini ever get loud while just surfing the web or viewing photos in iPhoto? 4) Has anyone used a Acer V223W display with this mini? I read elsewhere someone who used it as a second display on their iMac had issues with it so I hope that doesn't happen with the mini.
