The first Mac mini upgrade since 2007 replaces the integrated Intel graphics with an Nvidia GeForce 9400M card. Graphics still share memory with the system RAM, but there's more to share and its the faster DDR3 SDRAM. The new system features more USB 2.0 ports, but ditches FireWire 400 for a single FW 800 port. This system ships with a larger hard drive and more RAM--but also a $799 price tag.
