Thoughts on buying a Mac Mini to try out OSX?

Hey all,

For a long time now, I've been wanting to try out OSX, but I've never been able to justify the price for an entirely new OS. If I got one of the new Haswell Minis coming out soon, would it be worth the money? Would the experience be nice enough that it wouldn't make me hate it and be a good representation of OSX on other devices?

Anyone who's jumped on a Mac Mini feel free to say how it's been.
