    I am pretty sure Ive concluded the reason for the 4.6amp power supply.... apple powers their monitors from the DVI port.... so my question is, would it be neccesary to use a 4.6a supply? one of those 20 or 30" cinema displays must draw a couple amps

    HybridMike - the ADC style connectors power the monitor (and provide a USB link as well) from the machine's PSU. The mini has a plain DVI-d connector, however. Thus, no monitor power.

    Please don't flame the noob. I'm pretty sure an mod in that thread will lock it down soon enough. We don't need to be associating ourselves with that kind of stuff.
