This is probably more a question about OS X than the Mac mini, but is screen rotation allowed through the HDMI port? I'm about to buy a new Mac mini and switch over from Windows. I like to rotate my 24" screen, which runs at 1920x1200, from time to time for Word and Excel. Will this be possible? And where exactly is that feature found?

Yes! At minimum, it would be done through the Display control panel. But perhaps there is a script out there that can make it less tedious.

Make sure it has pins!

Thanks! I just wanted to make sure that it could be done. So, is there a way you can put that option in the top menu bar or something? You also mentioned looking around for a script. How do you typically run those scripts? Is it just like a shortcut on your desktop?

There are several programs out there. Just google "mac screen rotate". I used to use one of them on my MBA.

Thanks! I found one on Macupdate called Display Rotation Menu for OS X.

It seems to get decent reviews in the comment section. I just can't wait to get my Mac mini and get going with it now.
