    They use it like a DVD/CD player, frontrow and remote, store files on it (like :apple:tv)

    I use a Mac Mini in my home theater. Currently have about 25 movies and about 5 television series stored on it. Sounds halfway decent to boot when using an optical audio cable! I can't be bothered with front row and the little remote, so I mostly use a bluetooth mouse and the new little wireless keyboard.
