I just sold my macbook white 2007 laptop for 530. and bought a new mini at the apple store to replace it. What sold me and what always sold me on the 10 mini's is the hdmi output. Since I bought a macbook air. This mini will do 3 things: 1) Bittorrent server. 2) PLEX Video media server 3) Itunes and other gadgets sync. I hear rumors of this core i5 or core i3 possibility on the new mini. I say "meh". this mini is good enough. the only thing I'm mad is: I'm kinda mad that I didn't check the website to get the refurbish version at the apple store. I would of saved a 100 dollars. But then again, it would be a hassle to get my corporate discount on the apple website. If i could go back i would so i can order but oh well.
