    Link: Mac mini (Nvidia GeForce 9400M)
    Description:: PCMag analyst Joel Santo Domingo says the new Mac mini's "new internals bring it up to the same performance level as Apple's MacBook, and that's a good thing. It's the nettop-sized desktop that's a better alternative for many users."

    At the very least, a mobile graphics card beats the hell out of integrated graphics.

    If you're talking about the 9400m, I'd say this 'motherboard GPU' definitely qualifies as integrated graphics, as it doesn't have its own memory and is part of the chipset.

    Not that that's necessarily bad. Nvidia and ATI know how to make integrated GPUs not suck, it is really only the likes of Intel and VIA that has given such devices such a terrible name. :)

    Agreed, I will restate that then by saying, ATI's integrated graphics beats the hell out of Intel's endeavor.

    Except the Mac mini is using an nVidia graphics chipset...
