I cannot believe that Apple ships the Mac mini (plus iBook and iMac) with a mere 256mb of RAM. You have to be kidding?
Yesterday in an Apple Store that shall remain nameless, I managed to lock up their demo ‘mini within about 10 seconds. Opened iPhoto, attempted to then open Activity Monitor, pressed F9 (exposé) to see what else was open (err.. nothing) and bammo - spinning beach ball of death.
This is criminal.
