    This is the silent upgrade...lots of the minis got the upgrade, but it wasn't marked on the box. Not rare at all, but nice to have.

    I'd go with uncommon but not rare. We got one of the last PPC Minis like that.

    The video card on your Mac mini also should have twice the dedicated RAM of the regular Mac minis at the time. It wouldn't likely play an enormous part in better performance, but knowing Apple slipped that one in the case under the covers is a nice touch.

    I've heard the 1.33GHz & 1.5GHz PPC Mac minis referred to as "Phantom Edition".

    Oooh, Phantom. :D

    The 64MB should help a lot with Exposé and GUI tasks.
