A Mac Mini would suit my needs, but I need dual monitoring so I will probably have to go with a 17" iMac. Anyway onto my question. Say I have my iMac facing one way and I am behind it and want to control, then it won't work since IR has to have a direct line of sight correct? It there anything I can buy that would pick up the IR signal that I could face the other way from the front of the iMac? Would I be able to control front row etc through a universal dock connected to the iMac?
