    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?

    If your TV has DVI in then you don't need any adapters, just a cable. If your TV has VGA input, you need an adaptor for that, if it has HDMI in you need a different adapter for that. You also need a cable for audio if you want to play music through your tv speakers

    There is an S-Video (4-pin) input and RCA plugs (Red Blue Green colored plugs). Am I out of luck?
