Apple updated their Mac mini (and more but I don't care). Upgrading the video chip is what I had wanted before I purchased the last one, Mid 2007 model w/Tiger, which didn't change graphics processor: Intel GMA 950. Here's how they upgraded the spec.
The thing made me confused is VRAM. Apple says:
2. Memory available to Mac OS X may very depending on graphics needs. Minimum graphics memory usage is 128 MB for 1GB configuration and 256MB for 2GB
Is this hardware *configuration*? heh. No, it isn't. Some guys got the $599 model already tested with third party bigger RAM like 2GB, 4GB and saw that 256MB VRAM was allocated from main RAM. (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=661197)
That's awesome. I'll buy the base model and 4GB RAM. Be careful, the DDR3 is not cheap as DDR2 is and make sure its spec says "204 pin" and "PC3-8500". If it works on new MacBook Unibody, it should work on the new mini too. So, go there online store, find RAM for MacBook Unibody and throw it into your cart!
Update: I've just found the story on 123macmini.com. "OWC offers 4GB memory kits for new Mac mini ". Yeah, OWC rocks.
