Well, I’ve just placed an order for a Mac Mini Core Duo. I’m going to use it as a home media server. By media, I mean home video, commercial video, music, photos, Podcasts, webstreams, and more.

I decided on the more expensive Core Duo, as I’ve read that the Core Solo is not quite fast enough to handle full-frame high def video. The Core Solo is ideal as a really nice desktop computer, while the Core Duo is best as a media server.

Along with the Mac Mini, I’m using a LaCie 250gb 7200RPM FireWire mini HD. See this here:

The Mac Mini will also be connected to my new, excellent Audio Engine speakers, and to my TV via DVI. We’re going to have a “Lost” party on Wenesday night, so I hope it’s all set up by then. I’ll let you know how it goes!
