    Just wondering if anyone can tell me the main difference between the 128mb in the base model vs the 256mb in the upgraded one.

    I'm looking to purchase a mini and hook it up to dual 24" syncmaster monitors and just wondering if the 256mb would make a big difference.

    Sorry for the noob question. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    You're definitely going to want the additional RAM for each screen. See if you can do the RAM upgrade yourself. OS X will split it over each display so you want more.

    I'm pretty sure if you order the base model with 128mb and upgrade the RAM to at least 2gb you will get the 256mb shared.

    I'm definitely upgrading to 4GB of ram, just wondering what the big difference was in the video card.
