    Mac Mini resolutions
    Could I ask waht resolutions the Mac Mini can manage. I am trying to decide whether to buy one andwould like to know if it can manage? I currently use 1280 x 1024 on my PC and would cvertainly like to use that. However, will it manage the higher widesceeen resolution of 1920 x 1080?

    It is a shame the Apple sirte doesn't give more information on this sort of thing.

    Specs:
    iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, 256 GB SSD, 2 TB HDD, 8 GB RAM
    In the Apple stores, I see Mac Minis driving the 23" Cinema display all the time. It has a resolution of 1920x1200, so I am assuming that the Mini could handle 1920x1080. This is just a guess, I don't have a Mini. However, it seems a reasonable one given that it can drive a 1920x1200 display, which is larger.
    My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade

    Specs:
    iMac 5.1 | iMac 7.1 | iPod Touch | iPod Nano
    I have a 1.4Ghz PPC mini, and it drives 1600x1200 just fine. I'm sure a newer one can do higher res just fine.

    It will work just fine. I have used mine on my 22" Cinema Display and it was fine at full resolution. I run mine mostly on a 20" Viewsonic Wide Screen. Looks and works great.
