    I love my 2011 Mac Mini, but I want to be able to use it with media software like Front Row to access my iTunes content. These old eyes have a hard time reading the teeny print just using iTunes while sitting across the room. I'm using only Lion, so I'm not sure that stuff like XMBC or Plex.

    You can do a few things with this. You can always download the free Remote app from iTunes and use one of the iPads or iPhone you own to navigate your iTunes library from across the room (or anywhere in the house for that matter), or you can use a third-party media program to display your movies. XMBC and Plex are favorites on the forum, and both are capable of delivering a Front Row-like experience. The only thing is you'd have to rename your files in a format XMBC or Plex would be able to understand, assuming you don't already do this.

    Hope this helped.
