I know the 6630M is definitely better than the Intel 3000 for most things, and if I buy a Mini I'm probably going to do some gaming on it at least. What I'm curious about is how it compares to the graphic cards of the other Macs of the moment? I know Apple usually doesn't usually use super-powerful graphic cards in its machines, but I have an Imac from last year and it does fine for most games (at least in Boot Camp). I'm thinking of getting a Mini as an HTPC (the lack of a DVD drive is a little bit annoying, but only slightly), but just curious how it compares to say the Macbook Pro. Is it simply a matter of the Mini's 6630M being better than the Pro's 6490M? I don't know much about computers so never entirely how graphic cards are labeled. Although I presume all the Imacs are better, but I'd prefer not to buy another one yet. Right now my Imac has an ATI Radeon HD 5750, so the mini's 6630 is more powerful? Not sure if there's any difference between AMD and ATI Radeon, aside from the 5xxx and 6xxx series name. I don't need a high-end graphics card, probably mostly going to play stuff like Mass EFfect 2 and The Old Republic (whenever it is released). And by the way, as I said I'm not well-versed in computer stuff, but assuming I'm reading wiki correctly, one of the advantages of Thunderbolt is that in the future you could plug in a more powerful graphics card? Just checking, since I know hardware is always outdated from when we buy it, so plugging in more powerful graphics sound like a nice way to add longevity. And based on reading other threads, for normal everyday stuff (web browsing, e-mail, gaming) there's not much difference between the dual-core i5 and i7, correct? Although I might just get an i7 anyway but just confirming first.
