    So my parents said that if I get into a certain high school I can get something that I want. I think that hooking up a Mac Mini to my TV would be a good idea. I'll be able to buy a wireless keyboard and mouse so there are no wire problems. Is this a good idea?

    Do you want to do anything really specific with the mac mini, or do you just want it as like a better version of an apple tv?

    Yeah I want to be able to work while relaxing on the couch and yes it will be an Apple TV replacement because I don't really like it.

    In that case, it will definately be a good idea. Go for it, you won't regret it.

    I know you can use the remote app on the ipod with apple tv.. since you guys are talking about replacing apple tv with the mac mini I was wondering if the remote will work with mac mini too somehow (other than the regular control of iTunes)?
