So near, but so far..
Clever, clever Apple. 500 quid is just (only just) about swallowable for a mini, but 150 quid for an extra GB RAM and 160GB of hard drive? Fuck off! It'll be a sealed warranty busting situation if you upgrade by yourself again, I expect. Laptops have memory access slots, and the mini is a keyboard and screenless laptop..
500 quid *with* 2GB RAM (upgradeable to 4GB for a minimal price), 320GB HD and a mouse and keyboard would be more realistic in these times.
I want to know if a) multi monitor is enabled - it'd be a crime if not and b) This is a Santa Rosa based motherboard (8GB enabled, with hideously expensive 4GB SODIMMs)
