    In the future, I'm going to buy an entry level Mac Mini, and upgrade its RAM to 4GB's. Will games on Steam (such as Half Life 2, Counter-Strike, TF2, etc) run fine?

    Also, for music production apps like Pro Tools, will I experience any low performance, or chugginess? I'm not really up on Mac OS X, but with 4GB's on my current PC, I can record and produce around 8-9 tracks and plus with ease.

    On the fence
    Steam games will be fine on that, but I'm not sure what sort of performance you're looking for with pro tools stuff. It can do it, but since it is their entry level machine, it won't be exceptionally fast.

    If it's any help, I'm using a special, watered-down version of Pro Tools made for M-Audio products.
