I personally would go for the Mac Mini and the 17" Apple Studio Display. Just remember that the mini doesn't come with a keyboard or mouse. The eMac is a good system as well, with the large HD, SuperDrive, and Airport Extreme. Although does it come with Panther or Tiger? I'd say it really comes down to the OS in this circumstance. That's my 2 cents anyways.

i would get the mac mini. and if your on a budget you might want to look at different monitors yes the apple displays are really really nice and we would all like to have one they are kind of on the expensive side. you could prob get a good 19inch LCD for around 250$ and that will save you alot of money.
A mac can connect to any wireless network. their are no such things as mac only or pc only wireless internet. but their is such thing as a PC server and a Mac server but its really easy for us macs to connect to PC's.

Yeah the wireless will work. I would go with the mini but as the dude above me said...maybe look at other moniters. And if you're worried about keyboard and mouse then the emac is an awesome chice. I almost got it myself.

do you need airport with a desktop? the only reason i got it was i couldnt hardwire a cat 5 cable to the location. but if your able to have internet connection close to your desktop hardwiring it is the way to go.
