    Hi all,

    I want to get a new mac mini to use as an iTunes server and to play with lion server as a little project. Im in the UK but my friend is in Chicago and is coming home next week. He has said he will bring one back for me, but I'm not sure what model. Im going to upgrade the RAM and HDD my self so thats not an issue. the thing thats worrying me is the intergrated graphics is the intel graphics ok ? Could I play a 1080p Bluray rip ok ?

    If the I go for the 2.3GHZ with Intel graphics the best price I can find is $438 from here -

    Is this the best price i can get one for ? and is this place ok ?

    The site doesn't look very trust-able, the prices are just too unreal.

    I think I agree with you on that one, think I'll go for a refurb for $519

    Check they have it for 450 and there's a coupon code for 20 dollars off your first purchase. I just got mine from there and it has been flawless no scratches or anything.

    Same advice I always give in these situations....Check out Apple re-rurbs. You really can't go wrong, no risk etc.
