I've wanted a popcorn hour for a while, but I never pulled the trigger because of some negative stuff I had read. I've been looking at that new WD HD TV adapter, but it requires and external HD, and can't be hooked up to the computer and adapter at the same time (i'm looking for something compact and easily portable). A friend suggested I just get a Mac Mini to use as a media computer hooked up directly to my tv, and after reading about the mac mini, I must say I like the idea, it can play every media format possible (which the Apple TV can't), and I get that awesome looking front row program with a remote. Even at the lowest options (2ghz, 2gb RAM) it's overkill for a media computer. Couple possible questions though: 1) I read about the possible refresh coming at the end of January, do you think Apple would possibly put an HDMI out on a mac mini, or is it is almost definitely DVI and/or DisplayPort only? 2) I'd like to store a lot of media in the computer itself, rather than hook up an external HD. The mac mini has a 2.5" drive inside, so the highest I could upgrade is only 320gb, which still isn't a ton. Is it at all possible to open up a mac mini and install a 3.5" HD in place of the CD-ROM drive? Would there be any negative issues caused by this (heat, stability, etc.)? 3) Is it easy to network a Mac and a PC? My main computer is a PC, but I would like to be able to easily transfer files to the Mac Mini from the PC Thanks for any help.
