I'm a new father, and although I somewhat enjoyed wrestling with Windows software in the past, I just don't have the time anymore. I've got videos and photos stacking up, and grandmas and grandpas chomping at the bit! After seeing iLife '06 and with the new intel minis, I'm ready to pull the trigger. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend which model would be best for my purposes. Right now I'm thinking either the 17" iMac or Core Duo mini. My requirements in order of importance: 1) runs iLife apps well 2) price 3) use as "media hub" 4) browser/email/etc I've got a TV with DVI input, and an external usb2 HD that I use now for video. The mini seems like an obvious choice, until you get into the integrated gfx. But I have *no* desire to run any 3d apps or games, so maybe the mini would be enough. I'm planning on upping the RAM to 1gb on whatever machine I get. Thanks in advance for any advice anyone has!
