Last question(at least for today), I promise.

If I get a mini I would use synergy to control it from my PC. However I would like to use the wireless mac keyboard and mouse. Is there a bluetooth device I can plug into my PC to allow use of the bluetooth mac keyboard and mouse?

I have one sitting in front of me that cost all of $15 at a computer show. Never heard of the manufacturer, but it's tiny (smaller than a lot of USB flash drives) and for $15 how can you beat it? I can't tell you what the maker's name is because all it says on the outside is Bluetooth...

So Yes, there are a bunch of BT dongles you can use. Start searching...

Is there any reason why I couldn't use a, say, logitech bluetooth keyboard and mouse with the mini?

nope no reason, in fact, recently logitech released a 'mac version' of their popular wireless keyboard.
