Comment on "Review of Feb 28 Apple Announcements"

I'd gladly trade 64MB of RAM if I can pack 2GB into the system...

Even if you lose a minimum of 80MB of that extra RAM (which you still have to pay for, of course) to the integrated "64MB" video hardware? The PowerPC Mac mini had "integrated video" too in that it was soldered to the (tiny) motherboard. Dedicated VRAM vs. "I eat your regular RAM," that's the real sticking point.

Well, that and suck-tacular 3D performance, but the PPC mini shared that problem. The Intel mini adds a new one, though. This is not progress.
