I just bought a brand new Mini, 4GB memory, i5 chip. Watched a live ball game on ESPN. I have a fast Internet connection able to sustain high quality video (whatever that means, it is what ESPN shows to indicate video stream quality at the bottom of the window). The video played well for about 10-15 minutes, then the quality deteriorated (from 5 to 3 bars). I thought I was having connection problems, but just to be sure, I started the same ball game on my iMac which is next door from the mini. Sure enough, the iMac displayed 5 bars while the mini continued with 3. I restarted the program on the mini, and it still came back with 3 bars. I kept playing the video simultaneously on both computers for about one hour and things remained the same - 5 bars on the iMac and 3 on the mini. The mini also felt a little warm, although I didn't think about measuring the temperature at that time. So everything seems to indicate that the mini wouldn't have enough processor or GPU muscle to sustain a prolonged high quality video stream. Is that possible? I thought the the i5 processor should not have this problem. Does anyone have any idea about this? Tanks!
