    The mini appears to be the only Mac capable of driving dual display besides the MacPro, anyone planning on doing this?

    Not sure if the two output ports 1. mini display port 2. mini dvi port can drive the same screen resolutions? If so which connectors will be suitable?

    Will the 2.53 outperform my MBP 2.4 Unibody noticeably?

    Many people have done that with early 2009 Mini.

    It can drive one 2560x1600 (Mini DisplayPort) and one 1920x1200 (Mini-DVI) display

    I saw one guy driving dual monitors with a 2009 model, it was pretty cool, but you may be limited if your trying to do extensive graphics.

    Is it possible to upgrade the Mini's graphics card beyond the stock options?

    Who plans on using a mini to drive a 27" iMac at 2560x1440.
