    hello, about to be a new mac owner and will probably purchase Mac Mini 1.83GHz Intel Core 2 Duo..i got a couple questions 1st. i was wondering if i hooked this up to my 60 inch HDTV would it fill up the whole screen? also, i think it only gets 720p definition is that right also?


    thanks for the help

    i will probably only use this for online poker and netflix internet movies which is why i ask the 2 questions

    Screen size doesn't matter only resolution. The mini can fill any HDTV screen up to 1920X1080.

    It can do up to 1900x1200 I believe, 1920x1080 for HDTV 'cause that's the biggest they get.

    EDIT: It will always be full screen.

    Just be aware that the mini can sometimes stutter on 1080p from dropped frames depending on how the movie is encoded.
