Looking to retire my old 2006 Macbook (2 GHz, 2 GB Ram 667 MHz) as my media server. It streams to my iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV. One fan is blown, the battery is factory...so almost dead (on charge forever now)... and it is buffering and quitting when i watch 720p files on the TV it is directly connected. Now one thing may be to just leave that thing be and get a new AppleTV for my TV display, but I think I need an upgrade bad. I am trying to figure out which Mac Mini would do what I need. (2010 or 2011 versions). Plainly the newer ones are better in most aspects, but I am a little price conscience as of late do to other things. I normally just stream videos and download/convert videos from this media computer. I am not sure if I need a very processor heavy Mac Mini or should I go cheaper and get a lower grade processor but amp up the RAM. Buying 4-8 GB of RAM is not out of the question. I'd love a new one with the direct HDMI port, but I have read the DVI/HDMI of the 2010 model still outputs well at 1080p. Summing up: 1)Old model Mini or New? 2) Focus on RAM or processor? Any helps is appreciated.
