Cei, have you considered buying a base spec Mac Mini with a good processor, then upgrading the RAM and converting 1 HDD to 2x SSDs in raid, and adding a Thunderbolt display? I have just finished the same mission, and my little Mac Mini is now a Mac Daddy! :)

It's just frustrating that Asus couldn't be bothered to make a product available.
