    @TLB-
    I'm a complete Apple newbie, the Mini will be my first Apple experience since the IIe many years ago. Does the Mini do justice to the new O/S? Also, will 512Mb suffice?
    If not, I'll do the 1Gb install myself, $300US is pretty steep for a single stick.

    Everything works fine mate . You'll lose a couple of the visual effects but I have no problem running tiger on mine. Yes, do the 1GB install yourself, its really easy. Use a pallet knife to prise the bottom open, then just be careful not to damage anything. If your looking for good memory, I'd suggest 1GB from www.crucial.com - select mac mini from the guide

    It will actually run it fine, Tiger is quicker on many things than Panther, you'll just miss out on the hardware accellerated coreimage, but software coreimage is many times faster than quickdraw was anyway..

    You won't regret it! I think there are a few things that need ironing out, for example the crashes with iPhoto, but otherwise it is fast ans just nice to use! All this from a new mac user.
    Not around too often!

    is it worth the £58 for the update then, it still seems purely cosmetic?

    It's not really cosmetic, there's a lot of stuff under the surface which makes it a lot more powerful, it's just that it's new, so most people are showing off the flashy bits at the moment..
