How likely do you guys think it is that the next Mini refresh will include a BluRay disc drive?

I just got a 46" LCD TV, hooked up my MBP, and was in heaven. I would love a permanent internet-browsing machine in my home theater system... especially if it could double as a BluRay player.

If it ever gets refreshed, I'd say 50/50, but I'll bet they're more likely to phase it out or integrate it into a new "pro" part of the Apple TV lineup

that makes sense. I was even considering Apple TV, but i really just want the Web Browsing capability. People are speculating whether or not Apple will even jump on the BD ship being that they're pushing downloadable HD content... I may just settle for a used Mini, and spring for a PS3. Gran Turismo 5 will be out soon enough...

How much does a used mini cost right now?

depends which generation and model, obviously. I found a 1.83 GHz current gen on ebay for $400... in general they don't seem a whole lot cheaper.
