    Just ordered my Mac Mini! So excited I'm going onto NewEgg now and ordering 4GB ram! :cool:

    I decided I am not going to upgrade the Hard drive yet...
    I have about 4 external 500 GB drives sitting around here, I think I can spare one for those 5 USB ports! Plus 120 GB is enough for the operating system and programs.

    What's Everyone's Thoughts? Am I fulling myself? :)

    I'm thinking along the same lines myself.

    I'm actually looking at this 2 drive raid enclosure from Newegg, since it has a FW800 connection:

    I think having a raid 1 data drive connected by FW 800 would be pretty nice. I would throw a couple of 1 TB drives in it and mirror them, and then backup to a USB External.

    Everyone buying these new minis is really getting me itchy to pull the trigger on one myself...
