I need to get a computer for school (interactive media design courses) and the classes rely heavily on apps like Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash, etc. Is the graphics memory a huge factor in the performance of these kinds of apps, or are these apps more dependent on physical ram? I'm aware of the UB/Rosetta issue and its not a factor in my decision. I already have a macbook, but I also do music production in my spare time, so I need a dedicated desktop machine so that I dont have to constantly connect/disconnect all of my audio peripherals. I have a 23" ACD which I could sell to help fund a 20" imac, but I'd rather hang onto it if the Mac Mini's graphics are upto handling the task. Mac Pro is out of the question as its just too expensive for me. I'm not buying anything until the next round of updates, so I'm in no tremendous hurry to buy. Thanks in advance for any help.
