Hey all, I've decided to build a new HTPC and get rid of my cable TV, and I'd like to get one of the new Mac Minis to do it. This would be my first Mac ever, so I'm a bit wary about my choices of hardware, and would love to hear what people think about this setup. I'm trying to optimize value here, and spend as little as possible (student budget right now): Mac Mini 2009 model: $550 ($600-50 student discount) Apple remote from the mac store $20 extra 2gb of mushkin RAM from newegg: $40 miniDisplay to HDMI converter from newegg: $20 basic logitech RF wireless keyboard and mouse from newegg: $25 total: $681(which includes an estimated $12 of shipping charges) And voila, HTPC. Anything I'm missing? Anything a first time mac buyer wouldn't think to get? Other thoughts? Thanks!
