Well, after reading about Lion not being compatible with my old first gen Core Duo iMac I decided to sell it on eBay and buy the new Mac Mini. Amazingly enough, it sold for $575! Love the fact that Mac's hold their value so well. First let me say I love the design of the Mini. The aluminum unibody is gorgeous. Even the wife was amazed at how nice (and small) it looks. I have mine hooked up to a 32" Toshiba 1080P LCD in the computer room. Hooking it up via HDMI was a snap. I was concerned about using an LCD television as a monitor but the Toshiba has a pretty nice PC mode that makes fonts easily readable. So that saved me some money by not having to buy another monitor. I completely turned off any underscan on the Mac and set the LCD to native display mode and the screen is pixel mapped perfectly. As soon as I finish cleaning up the computer room I'll snap some pictures. Speed-wise, it's definitely faster than my old Mac. Handbrake is easily twice as fast. I can, however, tell the difference in hard drive speed. The 5400 RPM drive feels a bit slower. I'll probably just install an SSD somewhere down the road though so that shouldn't be a problem. RAM, however, is my next concern. The 2 GB is paltry. I've already ordered an 8 GB kit for less than $100 that should be here next week. So overall, I ended up spending $650 on the mini plus $100 for the memory. I got $575 for the old iMac. So I ended up getting a new Mac for around $175. Not bad.
