I would like to be able to get higher than 80MB shared though. Is that the hard limit or would you be able to change that? If I had 1GB for the system slot 1 and 512MB for the card in slot 2, I'd be very happy.
Can anyone confirm if the Intel chip is at least as fast as the Radeon 9200?
It's faster. It appears you have to have matched pairs of RAM though in the two slots. With Intel's integrated Graphics, if you've two matched DIMMs of the same size and type then the bandwidth to the graphics processor and indeed the rest of the system doubles to 10.6GB/s. If you've 1 1GB and 1 512MB it'll run at 5.3GB/s.
60GB HD as opposed to the 40GB and SATA!! - are they 3.5" drives btw?
No, 2.5" but they are 5400rpm as opposed to 4200rpm used in most of the old G4 Minis. Some of the later G4s had 5400rpm drives.
The only thing still putting me off is the lack of native Intel software, mainly Photoshop. Not to mention upgrading all my software. However, it will have to happen some day.
Make sure you load it up with RAM for Rosetta emulation. Personally, I'd rather have a G4 Mac Mini if I was running Photoshop though I'd have to be on a serious budget restraint not to consider buying a G5 iMac instead which can be picked up for £799 new.
That'll beat any Intel Mac for Photoshop work until Adobe bring out native software.
