I am having a go, but running into a roadblock:
Kernel Panic On Install of OSX SL on Mini 10v
Will try a few different approaches this weekend, then it's back to the Macbook Pro, unfortunately. I don't have the time to try every possible combination.
Thanks in advance.

Wow, I've been gone for a very long time... good to be back!
To put it short, I purchased my Mini 10v last Summer, the end of August to be precise. I had to go through several installs to get one that didn't kernel panic, and even then it wasn't perfect. Audio didn't work from the speakers at first after sleep, it would (and sometimes still does) hang when waking from sleep, an occasional kernel panic would occur on startup, and the trackpad drivers were absolutely atrocious.
Then, meklort came and released the latest version of NBI.
As soon as I finished the install, the system worked like a charm. Sound worked 24/7, kernel panics were eradicated, and the TRACKPAD OMG IT IS BEAUTIFUL TWO FINGER SCROLLING. It basically works almost as well as the real Mac that I'm typing this post on (keyboard is one of its few caveats... but isn't that true for everyone?).

At least it does not crash. @TheAPPLFreak Did you buy iLife for your mac or not?
Snow Leopard makes my Intel Atom feel like an i7!
