    I'm looking at getting a Mini to replace my first generation MacBook Pro. I'll be running a 20" and 23" monitor with it. I mainly use Indesign/Photoshop (some, but little, iMovie). No interest in gaming. I plan to max out the RAM (OWC).

    Question: is there any reason to get the 2.5 with the better Radeon graphics card for my use? $200 is a nice savings.

    Not really. The graphics card in the 2.5 mini is only a slight advantage over the IGP in the 2.3 mini. If you were driving say, 2 24 inch screens, I'd say go for the 2.5. Where you're just running a 20" and a 23" screen, the 2.3 will be able to drive them with no problem at all. :) Answer you wanted to hear FTW!
