(except as a replacement for an iMac) as soon as the next generation of Minis comes out, which should be quite soon.

The only thing that I disagree with is that I think only 8 gigs of RAM is necessary; this is based on a recent (MacWorld?) article showing that going from 8 to 16 is negligible as far as performance and value. It you were to go to 16, I'd suggest doing it via a third-party supplier to save some money.

I didn't give any advice on RAM with the mini but what's important is that you can always upgrade the amount of RAM you have. Whatever amount works for you after that is fine. Something like a MacBook Air, for example, you would be foolish not to max out the RAM at purchase since it can't be done otherwise.

Update: Forgot something - definitely get the Fusion drive, as Baselite pointed out.
