So I've just got a new refurbished 2012 mini that I have not yet taken out of the box. I don't have a spare monitor or a tv. But I do have an apple remote keyboard and also both a macbook pro and an iPad. Once my mini is up and running, I planned on using it as a media center and operating it remotely (without a monitor or keyboard) through screen sharing with my MBP, and for certain tasks through the iPad remote. My question is this: can I actually get the Mini up and running without plugging in an external monitor? In other words, can I somehow use my MBP or iPad as the "monitor" for the initial turn on and configuration? Thanks.
