Can you share how you have the mini setup? I was thinking of doing the same thing when i move into my new house. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

But Apple won't build the Mac that is right for me!

Apple Macs are the first choice among serious photographers who can afford them. But, no one tells them that the only ones that work for serious photography are Mac Mini's and Mac Pro's with pro-graphics non-Apple LCD displays.
Get real, Apple dominates in the imaging and publishing computer arena, but no one would know that from your publication.

In the headless line there is a huge price gap. Mini at $699 Pro at $2499. And yet Apple somehow can't see this huge hole in its lineup. Where is the $1299-$1599 product? The laptop and iMac lines do not have that big of a price gap between models.

Perhaps to add to the above, the back of the Cinema Display can house other devices (such as additional drives or dvd/blu ray read/writers etc.
Often I find my biggest frustration is that Apple can politely say it is green company with respect to materials yet insists you 'dump' entire machines for upgrades. Green to me is more than just materials its the utilization of the materials as well.
For now, I'll stick with my old Mac Pro 2.66 quad and 2009 model Mac Mini that both share one screen and both connect to a NAS. When Apple comes out with a beefier Mini or perhaps a "junior" Mac Pro I'll be again in the market for another Mac.
In the meanwhile, I have several friends that by my recommendation have gotten iMacs and are in love with them. They run OSX and the other OS in either virtual or bootcamp (for those apps that required that OS).

My mini can drive my two hi def monitors, my stereo, with the right cabling and it does it all in a quiet, cool little box. The mac is replacing something with three fans, a sound card that was about 1/5 the price of the mac mini and a graphics card that needed it's own air conditioner.
