Garageband runs decently on the mini. Load time is slow and you get some beachballs "hourglasses" here and there, but don't worry your music creation will never be the same after you start using it.

I have a 1.42 ghz mini with a gig of RAM that I just picked up yesterday. I loaded up all my programs last night, and GarageBand runs ok on it. Once in a while, past about 6 tracks running simultaneously, I get an error message saying that there isn't enough system resources to handle it. Load time is annoying, but I'm a bit spoiled - it loads in two seconds on my newest G5.
