    The stock core solo mini will not do a very good job of running non-native apps like Photoshop, due to the relatively low amount of RAM (512 minus 80 for graphics). I'm not sure if Final Cut Pro will run at all under Rosetta (i.e. non-natively) on any Intel Mac.

    Front Row does not allow you to record TV. In order to output to your TV, you have to buy a DVI to Video adapter, assuming your TV doesn't have a DVI input.

    There is no way Final Cut Pro is running on that machine with that
    graphics chip.
