    :confused::confused::confused: Can you be a little more specific? Best prices are in MacMall or other reseller but buying directly from Apple is safest way.

    Apple Education Store. You can get a free printer.
    Amazon. You don't get a printer, but the price is close to what you'd get if you sold the printer.

    I hope you have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

    Keep in mind that TV's don't make good monitors. Is your plasma 1080p?

    A lot of people here use them as home theatre PCs/media centers. Using Frontrow or Plex, they offer a very cheap and advanced system for organising digital media.

    In terms of use as a personal computer, the mini is ideal if you already have a monitor, mouse and keyboard. Otherwise, an iMac is probably a better option in terms of value.

    Yes it is 1080p. It would be just used to do basic stuff when I was home it will be for light use and stuff like that.
