I want a Mac Mini on steroids

Computerworld - "My current computer configuration is hooking up a 13-inch MacBook Pro to a 30-inch monitor and using a wireless keyboard and mouse with it. It works OK, but lately I've been craving some more speed. And some more RAM. And faster disk access. And a better video card than the embedded Nvidia 9400M video"

The cube would be good or even a mac mini 1.5 make the mini 1.5 times taller. you could fit in the good graphics card and the i5 or i7. have room for blu ray use 8gb ram. plus dual disc with wd's new 750gb slim as the max size with a raid switch in the back. raid 0 raid 1 or JOBD. That is a makable machine. I would pay 1k for it maybe a bit more 1.2k. If that is not tall enough to fit then go with a mac mini cube
