Headless Mini questions

I am considering whether to buy a Mini or MacBook. I would prefer to buy a Mini because it is cheaper and because I've read that I can use my Windows laptop as the display, keyboard, and mouse for it. However, I have some concerns about this:
- I can enable screen sharing on the Mini and then VNC into from my laptop. Will the screen sharing be enabled when the Mini is booted? Will I be able to VNC into it before I've logged into the Mini?
- From what I've read, if a monitor is not plugged into a Mini when the Mini is first started, the output resolution will be 800x600. One option I've read about is to buy the DVI Detective. However, I have also read that you can fix the resolution. I would prefer not to buy the dongle. Does anyone know if fixing the resolution works?
I appreciate your help.
