After having a quick read of the specs required for windows vista one thing caught my eye 128mb graphics card. I was wondering if apple would build in a feature that would allow you to adjust the amount of system memory that was available to the onboard graphics of the MB and Mac mini in OS 10.5? or is this a long shot.

I believe 128MB is only required for running the Windows Aero interface. The basic requirements for running Vista are just a card that is DirectX 9 capable. This basically means Vista will run, but you won't get to see all the eye-candy and graphical enhancements. It sort of reminds me of us old Mac mini owners not being about to see the Core Image candy. Laughing
