Hi there

I have been looking at purchasing a Mac Mini but have a question regarding its capabilities.

Is the mac mini capable of running programs like illustrator, photoshop? or is it striclty a media centre?

Any help is greatly appriciated.

No, but 1Gig of RAM is recommended.

I have one and it runs those programs.

You might want to wait a couple weeks before buying though.

It's rumored that the Mini line will be discontinued but I guess we'll wait and see.
