Mac Mini + Games... Finally!

So Apple have updated the Mac Mini to include a GeForce 9400M, finally ditching the Intel GMA 950 graphics chip that let the Mini down in terms of 3D performance.

I've spoken about Apple's game console and how great it would be to have had a decent graphics chip in the Mac Mini in a previous post.

Now you can get a full-blown computer with a 165 mm² footprint that runs OS X, burns DVDs, has WiFi, bluetooth, 5 USB ports, Firewire800, optical SP/DIF audio and plays games for under AU$1050.00, freeing you from the tyranny of Microsoft and locking you into the shackles of Apple... but they're extremely well designed shackles and they feel really comfortable.

Die X-Box! Die!
