I've been recommending a Mac mini HTPC to my brother for ages. Perfect for Netflix, iPlayer, YouTube, web browsing, Spotify, etc. I've been using my 2009 Mac mini with the bluetooth KB + trackpad and love it. While pricing up a Mac mini HTPC, i've just had a realisation that it's actually cheaper to buy an iPad and Apple TV and just airplay the two. The £399 model with an aftermarket £50 SSD will be fine. So £450 for the Mac mini option. Apple TV is £79, and iPad Air £319 = £398 for this option. Is this a dilemma anyone has come across?
