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.

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.

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.

Intel Core Duo Mac Minis can drive, at maximum, 1920x1200.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
