"If Apple does update the mini they better put the video card at the top of the list."

Yeppers!

I hope they offer a discount to Mac mini owners! If not for another 370-399 you could buy another mini instead of just buying the upgrade. Mr. Green

It seems likely that the Mini WILL support Tiger's Core Image. A while back, Apple took down the list of supported hardware from the Tiger preview site. I tend to think that with so many G4s with 32 mb VRAM in their line up, they had to make some changes to the list and to Tiger. It just seems silly to put out a new OS that is not supported by their entire current product line.

I do know for sure that a version of QT 7 will be available for Panther though.

I'm sure some of the features will work but others will be scaled down.

Does anyone know of any other features that the Mac mini may have problems with other than core image?

My point was that I don't think the Mini will have a problem with core image.

I read today that Best Buy is going to start selling the Mac mini but is holding off for Tiger.

"Best Buy may soon begin selling the Mac mini, according to a report from Merrill Lynch. "Last week one Best Buy showed us Mac mini accessories; Mac minis are coming later." The delay may be tied to the release of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, the research firm says. Purchasers "would not be pleased if they had to plunk down an extra $129 after their $499 Mac mini purchase." Merrill Lynch expects the upgrade by the end of April, stating it should "benefit F3Q earnings." The firm sees "plenty of anecdotal evidence of Mac sales benefiting from iPod success," but sales numbers for the Mac mini "will help provide evidence of the halo effect." Merrill Lynch has a price objective of $51 per share. For the second quarter of fiscal 2005, the firm estimates earnings of $0.22 per share, but "Apple may need to post a figure north of $0.25 to satisfy investors."
