I have begun to be real pleased with the mac mini. It was the one I put a new drive and ram in. Then I loaded snow leopard.
Between iTunes and Hulu it has been great hooked to my tv. I do use my small apple Bluetooth keyboard with it. but instead of tying to use a mouse I have been using an iPhone iPod app I had for a while. It is called ipad. basically it makes my device a wireless touchpad similar to the one on my laptop.
