Hi folks, I'll be touring the east coast in May and finishing up in NYC before flying home to Europe. I've decided to get a Mac Mini but now I'm slightly confused as to which one to get. As I'm not a US citizen & don't have a US credit card, I have to purchase from an authorised reseller or in an Apple store. At the moment I'm leaning towards B&H. I'm mainly a PC user and have very powerful, high end machine which I built myself. I use this machine for gaming, converting music, videos etc. I also have a 24" 1920X1200 Dell monitor. My intention was to get the Mini to put my iTunes library onto and to learn how to use OS X. In essence, I plan to use this machine as the hub for my Apple devices. (iPad, iPod) Other than that, it won't be used for gaming, encoding etc. Just web browsing, office docs, watching vids playing music from iTunes etc etc. Being an IT person I originally looked at the mini from a specs point of view and decided on an i7 2.7Ghz cpu, a 750GB 7200rpm HDD and AMD 6630M GPU with the intention of upgrading it to 8gb of Ram myself. This option would cost me $1048.95. Recently I've been thinking that this is overkill (I've also heard about the i7 running hot in the Mini) and the i5 2.3Ghz CPU with the 500GB HDD and Intel 3000 GPU (for watching 1080P content) would be okay since I won't be using it for any intensive work. This option would cost $568.95, which is a big difference. I think it would be better to have the 750GB HDD but the price differential between the two is ridiculous. Considering it wouldn't be my primary machine, I could easily take a spare 2TB drive I own and use it in an external enclosure to provide additional storage for the Mini. Can you please give me your opinions? Any and all help is appreciated!
