    Thinking about buying a mac mini, as a computer to use to manage my media, music, watch netflix, and probably football manager, BUT I only have a 32" 1080p TV to run it on at the moment, it may change in the future if i can find somewhere to put it, but i am wondering, firstly, will it work, and secondly, will it cause any performance issue, its the base model.

    The base Mac mini will work quite fine with 1080p video output, regardless if it is onto a 21" computer display or 50" TV. I do not know Football Manager and its requirements, but than can easily be looked up and if the HD4000 can satisfy those gaming need.

    It'll be fine. I'm using a 2009 Mac mini on a 42" 1080p Plasma. It's a cracking little media centre with XBMC installed.

    Occasionally. Even sat 7-8ft from it the text tends to be too small to be easily legible at default sizes.

    Generally I prefer to use the MBP if it's close by.
