Then there's the matter of extendability. Two years down the road i can add another GFX card, a couple of hard drives to build an in-place RAID system and double its memory without an issue...

The GPU is the weak point of the Mac mini, no doubt about that. But there are very cheap and easy ways to put two drives inside a Mac mini, so don't let that stop you. The reason is that Apple has a two-drive server version of the mini, so there are kits to convert a non-server mini.

OWC Data Doubler for Mac Mini

OWC is also one of many companies that let you expand Mac mini RAM up to 16GB.

So I don't get why you're saying that a PC has the advantage of dual drives and RAM expandability. Those are both easy to do in a Mac mini.
