I finally got to the Apple store and spent a good 20 min playing with one of the new mini's. Beautiful machine but I did find that apps took longer than expected to open. I'm assuming this is because the mini was the stock setup without maxed out ram. However, one thing really troubled me: I went to the Apple Trailers page and opened some 1080P clips, and each of them got weird with images that faded to black, or faded up from black. A horizontal line would flash during virtually any fade and even on some tight cuts where contrasts shifted abruptly. The Imacs in the store showed none of this problem whatsoever on the same clips. Could someone here who's got a new mini fitted with 4gb of ram try playing the 1080P version of the SLEEP DEALER trailer (this one was easily the most difficult on the mini - but againm the iMac played it effortlessly) and let me know if it plays without any weird issues? http://www.apple.com/trailers/independent/sleepdealer Thanks in advance!!!
