625 SEK, about 80 $ Very Happy
So all of a sudden the middle model was just 375 SEK (47 $) more expensive than the 1,25 GHz Very Happy

No, I don't think it is.

Take a look at the "Hardware Support" section.

I hope Apple got the dim-video problem fixed...


Actually, it is Core Image capable. According to ATI.

Got a question about Core Image. Other than the ripple effect with widgets what else are we missing?

Ummmmm.... Did either of you consider actually clicking on the link that Yoshihide K provided?? The one that says "macosx/features/coreimage" right in the URL.

Yeah, actually I did read that. I'm just not sure if I understood it correctly so I was hoping soneone would explain it in a more simple way. Confused

Core Image makes the CPU do less work and the GPU do more work.

i.e. makes things run zoom zoom! Laughing

I can't classify that as an update, in my book. Like two BTO options were just added as standard. Big deal? They needed a speed bump, at least. Rolling Eyes

The iBook updates on the other hand were much nicer. Much more updates, and the iBook value has gone up very much! I agree in that the iBooks are gonna fly off the shelves for back-to-school kids, like me. I have decided to purchase an iBook 12" as well.

But for the Mac Mini, Apple tried, but just missed the bar. Confused

I'm not even sure they tried. I think they're saving up for the Intel systems.

I suspect that the reason for the lack of a video upgrade is 3-fold:

1. They don't want to retool for a new motherboard before the Intel upgrade.
2. The heat problems. They've already cut the video out levels.
3. Market segmentation. If you want full Core Graphics support you need to upgrade to an eMac or iMac.


Agree 100%. Hope they can fix the heat issues before the Intel systems start to ship. Apple, please don't ship them with integrated Intel graphics! Mad
From your mouth to Jobs' ear... but, alas, they did.
