I remember looking at a friend's setup, which was mac mini, and apple tv. The mac mini does look great.
I thought the same about the apple tv at first- it seemed to have a quite restricted range of formats. And itunes seemed to have
a quite limited range of movies and tv shows, all mainly hollywood. Recently that seems to have changed, and now there
is quite a big range of movies and tv shows
Right now we're in the honeymoon phase.
We're sitting around, looking at this big new tv, watching lots of itunes trailers and looking at photos
of our holiday.
