Currently, my mac mini is something like a home server/general tech use, with it hooked up to my plasma (60" vizio...mmmm...only 720p, but i'm still *quite* happy w/ it). It's connected to two external usb drives, w/ one serving as media repository (itunes/iphoto libraries, torrents, ripped dvd collection, etc) and another as time machine backup for the mini itself and 2 macbooks. Now...I'm starting my own architectural graphics/planning company, and to that end i've ordered a mac pro. It would be situated close enough to the TV to be connected to it w/ ease (thank goodness for monoprice's cheap hdmi cables), and I suddenly realized that I might not need the mac mini. Can any of you think of a reason why having the mac mini preserve his current duties would be helpful at all, or can the mac pro do everything? One thing i've been considering is screen sharing/vnc connections. I use screen sharing a LOT to do work on the mini from my laptop (network maintenance, updates, etc.), and it would be really nice to be able to do general 'computing' on one display, while another display is being used to watch a movie/tv show from itunes. If I used solely the mac pro, and hooked it up to the TV and the 30" cinema, could I vnc/screen-share into only the 30" cinema and not disturb the tv? I'm sure there are details I forgot to mention; let me know what i've overlooked if you need it to answer the question. Thanks a lot for reading and your input!
