Beats the use of the smaller and considerably less powerful streaming units

Summary: You do not need any of the options for streaming on your TV if you have this item. It has fast WiFi built in and can access the internet on your TV. Add a small bluetooth keyboard and a Microsoft mouse 5000 and you are all set to enjoy any streaming you choose.
Summary: Had a first generation Mac Mini w/ the Power PC processor. It worked flawlessly all these years but was getting slow compared to these days standards but was still chugging along like a true soldier.
It just works! No crashes, no heat issues and fast enough!

Summary: Been buying used Macs in the past seven years to save money. My previous one (and last), a 2004 G5 iMac, I bought used in 2007 from PowerMax. Unfortunately it had previously caught fire and PowerMax didn't tell me.
Summary: My last mac was a G4 emac. It finely died six months ago. Ive been looking for a replacement. Ended up getting a first generation iPad and a mini for less than the cheapest PowerBook. I'm very satisfied this combination.
Summary: This box has to be the best server for the money Apple has offered yet. Don't be fooled by the form factor. This box rocks! I just wonder why Apple hung on to this size computer for so long. If they wanted to offer a better/faster server they could have continued the X-serv line.
Great multi-purpose home machine: Server, Desktop, & Media Center

Summary: I got the server version of the Mac Mini because of 3 main reasons: 1) Comes with two 500GB hard drives for a total of 1TB. Yes, you do not get a DVD drive with this. I was able to use a 2 year old USB Sony DVD writer no problem.
