    Last month I got my hands on a early 2006 Intel Mac Mini, it came with Tiger, had an 80gb HD, 1.66GHz Intel Core Duo processor, 512mbs of RAM, and a DVI output. I upgraded the HD to 320gigs, RAM to 2gbs, and Tiger to Snow Leopard. But I just want to know, is it going to be compatible with 10.7 Lion?

    There are rumors of it may requiring 64bit cpus which would mean no. However, this has not been confirmed.

    Hopefully not though

    I don't know if Apple is quite ready to make the leap to only 64 bit processors, but I wouldn't be surprised. Don't feel too bad though if you aren't supported, as people who bought high end G5 systems were already left behind a year ago.
