I'm on a 24 inch mid 2007 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4 gig of ram how much of an improvement would a base 2011 mini be? One of the biggest reasons I will be buying a mini is for the HDMI for watching things on a 47 inch led tv. Can I use the hdmi for a TV and still have it hooked to a monitor and do regular surfing and computer tasks while having a movie on at the same time? I did try a couple mini dvi to hdmi converter cables on my iMac they would work really good but then the iMac would get really hot and eventually the picture on the tv would get fuzzy and the converter cables would stop working. Inside should be pretty clean as I just cleaned the fans and blew it out with air when I installed a 1tb drive a few months ago when the original 320 gig died. Since in the buyers guide Apple has never released any product in November or December I will be waiting to see if a new mini comes out this month, if not one gets ordered Nov 1st. Any preferred ram dealers, and ram modules to stay away from? Thats about all my questions for now, thanks for any help in advance.
