I was going to go out today to buy a new Mac Mini and had a question or two that I hope someone can answer. The reason I am going to get one is because I want to stream my media (Movies, Music, Pics) and access files/documents on the Mac Mini and then use it with my iPhone and new iPad while on the go through Wifi. I would want the Mac Mini to be hooked up to my 49" Samsung 1080p LCD TV in the bedroom. 1. Is the Mini Displayport better than the Mini-DVI port... does it get a better picture or is it a cleaner signal? 2. Is it safe to keep it running 24/7? I probably would shut it off or put it to sleep when I am done for the night. 3. I would be hooking up an external hard drive (WD Passport) on one of the USB ports. If the Mac Mini is in sleep mode does the external drive go into sleep mode too? 4. I also have a Thermaltake BlacX docking station and use a WD 1TB drive. Is something like that compatible with the Mac Mini? Thanks for the help.
