Well, it is finally time for me to upgrade my current computer. It's an old iBook G4 PowerPC 1.07GHz, 768 MB ram, 10.3.9, 40 gig HD (I think). I was looking at getting a Mac mini and hooking it up to my TV, ala home theater/simple computing. I want to get the wireless mouse and keyboard too (or, are there other brands Mac compatible that have a trackpad on the keyboard?). Is it safe to assume that even the 2.0 GHz Duo and 2BG Ram will be 4 times faster than my current set-up? I don't want to spend more than $1000. I am a student so I can get a little education discount. But with that $1000 I want to have the connector for my tv too. But first of all, how do I figure out if I CAN hook it up to my tv?
