T. For the OP, who was trying to figure out if TB + HDMI would drive his displays in a satisfactory fashion (probably not down-rezzed), the size of the displays at hand is relevant, i.e. connected, applicable and consequential information. If he has two 30" displays and adopts your proposed solution because "size does not matter", he's going to be pretty upset when he finds that one of his displays is running at much lower resolution.

Yes my question was about a calibrated screen that was for final product rendering. I need my display to represent as close as possible my printed version. Specifically full color 8.5"x11" web press magazines.

Those that believe they can, CAN, because they BELIEVE!

What size & resolution are your display(s)? If more than 1920x1080, you'll want to connect via TB rather than HDMI in order to get the full native resolution. The Mac mini's HDMI output only supports up to 1920x1080 (aka 1080p).
