    As I continue to buy into the never ending Apple ecosystem I now need a cheapo Mini to run our iTunes library 24/7.

    Want to have it run Home Share for our new Apple TV's.

    Will a cheap Core Solo work? Need to share out Quicktime files in HD and then music, plus read our Aperture Library.

    I'm not familiar with the entire product line so must have Gigabit, don't care if it burns DVD's just so long as it reads them.

    Yes but a Core Duo would be better. You can always upgrade the CPU. The Intels all have gigabit.
