Hey folks, I currently have an early 2008 model mini (1.83Gh, 500GB HD, 2GB ram) which gets used mainly as an HTPC ( hooked up to a 50" Panasonic Neo Plasma). I don't have a fancy sound system, so for sound output it is hooked up to my stereo via the line out. I love my mini but there are a couple of things which are swaying me towards buying a new one. The first problem I have is that I am getting close to filling up the current hard disk. The second issue is that when playing back video, I frequently get stutters in the video and I often get issues with the sound getting out of sync with the video. I'm guessing that the mini simply can't handle the high res picture Now the way I see it is I have a couple of options: 1) Buying some external storage and some more RAM ( I'm not convinced that it will make a whole lot of difference as it will only support 3.5GB). 2) Buying a new mini! I'm trying to decide if it is really worth spending money on what I have or if I would be better selling this mini and putting the money towards a new one. I've seen some nice deals on the server version on eBay which are very tempting (2.66GHz, dual 500GB HD, 8GB RAM). What are people's thoughts? And if I go for a new Mini is it worth going for the server version over the standard version?
