Before the "OMMFG not another GFX question use search you worthless turd", I have spent the past few minutes hunting down topics for the Mac Mini. However, I just think it's easier that the people who know what they're talking about can answer this without using any brain power: My Intel 2Ghz C2D is on the way which features the base Nvidia 9400M 128MB shared, I'm adding this next to my current Intel 2GHz CD. One thing I was hoping for was a change in the way videos are handled, seeing as anything that uses more tha 10% of the power of my rape-ass, all high & mighty Intel GMA 950 64MB shared causes my MacBook to heat up and fans to blare. Which is the the time. I constantly find myself fighting to hear simple flash animations or videos since the speakers being pointed towards the screen doesn't really help. I know I have my Z-5500 but I've gotten reported in my dormitory for using it higher than 5% volume (sometimes when I'm not even in the room and its not on). I also find it demeaning when people walk by and stare at the awkward position I put myself in to get closer to the speakers. For the tl;dr folks, my simple questions are: -For flash animation, will the better GFX card help improve viewing? Far I've read SL was suppose to bring this feature or something, but anything that makes it so I can watch flash/youtube in my room without needing to argue with the interior fans which is starting to sound like someone constantly raping my ear with a condom made of sandpaper. -I plan to have my MM hooked to my Dynex. I received the cords and used it to split the screen with my MacBook, however the edgy appearance of the screen raised eyebrow about if I'm going to see the same smooth display as I do on my MB. I heeded the quote from that concern: but after talking with some other people, is wasn't a matter of if it can display 720p, its if it would output the same quality as I see on my MB's monitor. Perhaps its something I should of thought of then, but I don't feel like having my flaps chewed for bumping & double posting in my own topic again.
