My parents are still using my old G4 as their only computer. Every computer they've had since our first PC (IBM Aptiva 60Mhz Pentium) has been a hand me down from me. So I just ordered the base model Mac Mini w/ 2Gb ram and the integrated graphics. I'm sure most of this will be perfectly fine for my parents. I do have a couple questions though. I've seen a lot of people recommend more RAM right off the bat. Both Crucial and OWC have some pretty good prices, but I don't understand why they offer upgrades up to 16Gb when Apple says it only supports up to 8Gb. Not that I would spring for the 16Gb upgrade...but what gives? Second, I'm going to spring for an LCD monitor (currently leaning towards the ASUS VH236H). Can I benefit from an HDMI cable, or does the DVI to HDMI adapter give the same image quality?
