This only thing big about the mini is how much press it is getting!

They don't know what they are missing! These are the same guys that love the iPod and slam OS X. They can take their viruses and security problems and stuff it. I switched and will never look back! The Mac mini is going to bring over more people you watch. Very Happy

anandtech had another good review today on the Mac mini.

The Mac mini as a Media Computer
http://www.anandtech.com/mac/showdoc.aspx?i=2349

"Through our continued use of the mini, we still find it an excellent way to get introduced to OS X; although, we are still frustrated by its performance at higher resolutions, thanks to its meager 32MB of video memory. We've heard from many PC users that while they are tempted by the mini, they will wait for what will essentially be version 2, hoping that it will have more video memory, and maybe even an updated graphics core. Given that the current mini makes use of the Radeon 9200, we'd expect its successor to use ATI's X300, which would bring it compatibility with Core Image and Quartz Extreme 2D. With the mini having just been launched, don't hold your breath for an updated version anytime soon, however."

Apple Mac Mini V2 needs more video memory. There are still a lot of core image hold outs out there.
