however, im unsure if i should go brand new or refurbed. what are the pros and cons of this idea? i see an $80 cut on the intel solo mini. they both come with apple remote for front row which i want. 1.5ghz/60gb/512/airport/BT/Combo/ i wont use it for games so im thinking cheaper dell 19" lcd. if its better to go brand new then by all means tell me because im planning to buy tommorow. im so glad that i waited for a little while to buy a mini cuz i like the idea of being able to run windows native.
also, can mini's boot from external drives? this would make it so much easier for me to put windows on a hard drive and save the space of the internal.
