My 2006 1.66ghz CoreDuo mini finally died. I'm going to do a power supply swap with a friends to make sure it's not that but I'm pretty sure it is dead. I came back from a vacation (it was unplugged too!) and went to power it on, the fan and light come on. No bong, no screen, nothing. Tried everything, memory reseat, hard drive pull, pram, pmu, etc, nothing. Anyway, I use the mini on my HDTV and with my HiFi setup. It's mostly a music and video device. I don't game, ever, nor will I. Video is via dvd rips, quicktime, flash, or netflix. Do you all think I'm OK with the base mini? I'll upgrade the RAM and put the SSD in from my current Mini, since I don't store anything local... just OS and apps, everything is on a NAS. $200 seems steep for $20 of RAM, a minor CPU bump, and the GPU, which I don't think I'd be using, correct?
