The last Mac I've owned was a G4 iBook. (a long time ago) I've been looking into buying a Mac Mini and upgrading it to 4GBs of memory and a 7200 rpm HDD. I'd like to use it to edit photos (12MP), some light video editing (short Youtube videos) and for messing around with the iPhone/iPod Touch SDKs. Everything else, from playing games to listening to music and watching movies, I intend to do on my PC. Will the $599 Mac Mini, with said upgrades, be able to handle these tasks okay? Should I be concerned with the extra heat generated from a 7200 rpm HDD? (I don't intend to get a SSD) Lastly, do you guys think that Snow Leopard will be released anytime soon? (within the next 2 months?) If it isn't going to be released anytime soon, I have no problem buying the Mac Mini now and upgrading to SL later on. Thanks in advance!
