They could put a better graphics chipset in them without a doubt, the G4 Mini's have the 32MB Radeon 9200, while that might not be any better than the Intel GMA950 the new one's use, it at least had dedicated memory. The GMA950 uses at least 80MB of system memory, while only actually using 64MB. They could put a modern mobile graphics chipset in them if they really wanted too.

They could put a better graphics chipset into them without a doubt, the original G4 mini's used the 32MB (64MB in the 1.5Ghz) Radeon 9200. While that may not be any better than the Intel GMA950 in the new ones, it at least had dedicated memory. The Intel card eats up over 80MB when it only uses 64MB for actual graphics processing. They could put a modern (though probably low end for size reasons) mobile graphics chipset in them if they really wanted too.

But they won't; that's what the iMac (costing 2-3 times as much) is for. Duh! :p

Yeah, but it's not just the video processor that drives up the price of the iMac. You've got that integrated camera also!
