I was going to do a media PC upstairs that would play Bluray and some other media that I currently have. I found a mac pro 2.66 (previous generation) fairly cheap (around $1600) to use for this, but after the announcement yesterday...I am unsure. With both units I would be using an external bluray burner for ease of use and portability. My concerns are: Should I get a current generation Macbook? Are there still issues with external Bluray drives? Should I wait and see what they do with the Mac Mini? I did consider using a mac mini for this, but I am not 100% sure it would have the power to handle 1080p without stuttering. If anyone is currently using a mini with Windows to playback BLuray movies, I would love to hear your input.
