I am planning on getting a Mini to use as a music server with audio out to my stereo through the optical out jack and using the app "Remote" to control the Mini.  My question is that I can buy a older Mini (Intel Core Duo 1.66GHz, Wifi, B-Tooth,1024 Ram) for $150 which I know can't be updated with anything higher than Snow Leopard.  Are the newer updates of Itunes combatible with Snow Leopard?  If so, do I need to worry that it won't be in the near future?  I was assuming that the "remote" app can be used with this model of Mini and Itunes, is that a correct assumption?  Any other suggestions would be appreciated!  Thanks!

That is a VERY old computer.  I would say it's not worth buying at any price.  You'll be locked into such an old version of iTunes that it most likely won't even work with Remote.
