I am curious: what made you choose a Mac Mini, if I may be so bold?
I've been looking at getting a Mac for a while, and I wanted a desktop machine, but wanted to be able to use the display for other things, and be able to seamlessly integrate into a home theater system. Beyond that I don't really have the space for an additional computer/monitor setup right now. I also spend a lot of time out to sea (I'm in the Navy), so by choosing the Mac Mini I'm able to plug in while I'm out to sea using my gaming monitor (15"LCD) and it will fit in my locker without a problem. I also wanted to keep the costs low, seeing that this is my first venture into the world of Mac, and my wife and I decided that a $1000 price cap would be reasonable for doing what I do. I also have a friend from church who has a 1.66GHZ mini and loves it, and he's been converted. So, all of these things combined landed me on a 1.83GHZ mini.
