Her current Dell laptop is getting a little beat and well, its old (2gig P4, 1gig ram, 18gig HD, CD-R drive). I was originally going to buy her a Macbook but the small screen is, um, well small (MBP is out as she doesn't need something that powerfull, plus I already have one). So next option is the iMac, which I was all set to buy, until yesterday. As kind of a "hey I wonder if this will work?" I attached the MBP to our HDTV via an old DVI to HDMI cable and surfed the web / played a couple games in 42" glory.....Which got me thinking about the Mini. The new plan now is to put a Mini in our entertainment system and she can use a wireless keyboard/mouse and the 42" to surf, email, iTunes etc.... Now to the questions. I had zero video issues attaching the MBP to the TV, will the Mini be as easy (MBP has a MUCH better video card)? Also, the TV is an older 42" Sony Wega 1080i if that matters (basically, has anyone tried/currently use this configuration?). Would there be anything worth possibly waiting for @ Macworld (better graphics card)? 2gig C2D should be plenty fast for what she wants to do, so a speed bump is not that important. I would also get 2gig ram right off the bat, just because. Am I missing anything?
