    I just received my 799 mac mini.

    I have it hooked up to my onyko a/v receiver which is connected to my 50 inch plasma.

    I use it for plex and my itunes server.

    If you have any questions for me just ask away.

    Do you have Counter-Strike: Source?

    If you do, could you run the Stress Test?

    Many of us are having trouble finding out how good the graphics card really is. Any games fps would be very helpful, along with anything else you think about it!:)

    If you're going to install Windows by any chance, it'd be nice to know whether Quick Sync accelerated encoding is accessible.

    How smoothly does iPhoto transition to full screen? The HD 3000 mini at the store struggled with that.

    Just tested on my new 2.5 and the transition is seamless.

    I will install windows later today and do some stress tests.

    I can tell you it runs plex very well! It can play a 30gig rip of the new lord of rings blu ray without a hiccup. I can even fast forward 30X and it ran amazing.

    I use Aperture. My Photo library runs off a Drobo. I can say its very smooth!

    So far I'm very impressed by the ATI card. I say the 799 is worth it!

    Do you have a 2560x1440 (or 1600) display? I figure that can't be helping the visual performance of the HD3000 minis in stores.
