Yes strange question. I just can't seem to bring myself to buy such a low power machine for 600 bucks. I want a computer for my big LCD in the family room. And the mac mini certainly fits the bill. Would it be idiotic to buy something like a dual 2.0GHz G5 tower instead. I know the G5's are out of date. But wouldn't it be able to play 1080p? Any ideas as to where to get a gently used mac mini for a good deal. Looked on local craigslist (boulder/denver area) not seeing much. Thanks!
