I don't have one. Is my iBook, bought last year, not high enough spec, or am I missing something?

    I read somewhere that Apple will be expanding the gfx card support in future releases. Is this true?

    Will my Mac Mini have the ripple effect? I have read it won't..



    Some people were complaining about it being annoying after the initial excitement, so maybe it's a good think if it won't work after all.

    True. What counts is a programmable GPU. Now Apple has a CPU-fallback feature when there is no such a GPU in the system, but I guess that the ripple effect was too bad on CPU so that they decided to disable it completely when the GPU cannot play it.

    You have read correctly. The Radeon 9200 in the Mac mini is not programmable and the ripple effect should be disabled.

    I think this is just personal preference. Some like it, others don't.
