    Upgrading the diminutive desktop to 1GB of memory initially cost $475--almost as much as the computer. It now costs $325.
    What a rip off!

      Yikes! That's a lot of money. I checked the online store and it's $75 to upgrade to 512mb but $325 to jump to 1 gig. I presume it's the chip cost since the mini has only one slot for mem?

      The $599 version doubles the hard drive to 80 and bumps the processor speed for the extra $100. Okaaaay, but a little marginal in my opinion.

      Fortunately, the base $499 model will perform just fine in car usage.
