Living Room

The specs on the Mac Mini page indicate DVI output up to 1920x1200 pixels (what are the extra 120 lines for?), and VGA output up to 1920x1080, which is the highest HDTV standard resolution. As long as it's got the processing power to handle QuickTime files with MPEG-4 and H.264 codecs, it's just what you need for the back-end to an entertainment system.

The hard drive is a bit on the small side, even for the 80Gb version, for that purpose, so that would need a bit of hacking. Hmmm...Do you suppose we'll see Apple respond in their next product cycle (when is that, NAB in April?) with a Media Server version of the Mini, with a big hard drive built in?
