I just recently started using a mac for the first time in my life and I love it way better than PC. I have windows xp and had bad experiences with vista. I have a new mid-2009 model 15" MBP 2.66ghz, apple cinema display 24-inch, apple TV 160gb, bluetooth apple keyboard and mighty mouse, iPhone 3G (t-mobile), ipod touch that came free with the student discount, and recently, my gf bought me MobileMe subscription for $60 from ebay. I was on the 60 day free trial but now I basically have 14 months of mobileme service! I'm liking mobileme so far actually although I cancelled my previous free trial this past summer only after 2 weeks of use and thought it was useless but it actually isn't for me. Anyway, I was looking into a refurbished macbook air (with the current new specs 1.86 ghz with 128 gb SSD) or the new upcoming mac mini that was rumored to be released this month. I burn movies sometimes with my MBP to archive my DVD movies in a external HD. Which would be more suitable for me considering i have these things? Not too concerned about using a mac mini as a media server since I have a hacked apple TV already. I carry my MBP around with me every time I'm on University's campus and to places I study at sometimes, such as Starbucks. Demographics of me: 24 year old male, registered nurse getting his masters in family nurse practitioner at a university (so no intensive graphic work), I used to play windows games intensively but now I got a mac, not too much compatibility in games for macs and also not much time for those now days since I'm in grad school. I mostly do use office for mac 2008, iWork '09, various iLife apps such as iphoto, imovie once in a while, ichat, etc. Download music and movies from itunes since it seems movies from itunes are a bit cheaper than buying the DVD in stores. May burn movies to hard drive at times with handbrake. 1. I have the peripherals of apple display, bluetooth keyboard and mighty mouse. Would it more useful and appropriate for me to get the refurbished Macbook Air with the stated specs above or the upcoming mac mini? I have enough money for either one. 2. Does the new gen of MBA get super hot like they said about the previous gens? 3. Anyone in the same situation? Not necessarily the same field of study. 4. How does having two macbooks compare to having a MBP and a desktop like Mac Mini? Better to have laptop-laptop or laptop-desktop (I have mobileme to keep in sync).
