Mac Mini is my Home Theater
on August 1, 2010
I have been using a Mac Mini for my home theater for 3 years now. When Apple announced they were upgrading the Mac Mini 2010 to include a HDMI port, I put my older mini on Ebay and sold it for 400.00. For 3 years that Mac Mini cost $200.00. You cannot get this type of return on any other computer brand except Apple.
I searched all over and could not order this Mini any where, to new. I looked on Amazon and there it was. I could not believe my new Mac Mini was on my front porch in three days! Thank you Amazon.
This Mac Mini is used for Amazon movie watching, and I stream video from many popular internet sites. along with video blogs that I am registered with. The system is fool proof and is controlled by a Logitech bluetooth keyboard or my iPad or my iPod.
I am not using this Mac Mini for all its capabilities to say the least. This Mini is the hub for my home theater.
The performance, style, small size, and noiseless operation makes this Mac Mini just perfect for home theater applications. With its solid aluminum case, it is stunning. The build quality is second to none. It has as standard features; built in wifi, bluetooth, USB, remote control capable, Firewire 800, DVD player-burner, digital audio, HDMI and wired network. The Mac Mini has all that you could ever ask for in this type of computer.
Because this Mac Mini is on my network I have access to all my media from NAS drives and Drobo making the included Front Row media program simply perfect.
The MAC Mini is now a very powerful computer, if the Mac Mini can handle my video intensive needs, it can handle almost anything else you may what to throw at it.
