    I have one of the newer Airport Extreme Base Station's with the Gigabit ethernet and 'n' networking with all updates applied. I'm interested in getting one of the newer Mac Mini's but know they only go up to 'g' networking. Is that true? If so, will it slow down my n network or is that something that was just true with the original base station without the updated n specs?

    It's true that the Mini is still g, and yes it will slow down the network.

    Yes. You will have to operate in 'mixed mode' which goes to 130mbps max. I am keeping my g router for all the older stuff in my house (Wii, DS Lites, mini, Airport Express) and the AEBS will be for all the n stuff (thank Jobs for 5GHz mode).
