    It looks like I am going to purchase a mac mini for a friend and I will be wanting to set it up and then send it to her whereupon she can plug her monitor in.

    However I only have a rMBP and I don't have any other monitor I can use so I was wondering if I can somehow use the screen on the rMBP connected to the mac mini just so that I can see what I'm doing on the mini in order to set it up.

    Do you have a TV with HDMI input? The Mac Mini has HDMI-out.

    That's a great idea, I don't have a TV so it didn't even occur to me. I'm sure I can borrow a tv monitor in order to set it up. thanks.
