I just bought an Apple Mac Mini - Model A1103 1.42Ghz PowerPC G4 1GB Power Mac 80GB HDD, and wish to find all I can about it.

Who might have some links where I can gather information?

Thanks

Start with this excellent, free app that has data on every Mac ever. You don't have to sift thru to find yours... just click on the top left sidebar where it says This Mac.

I have one of the Apple 17" acrylic screens for the G5, and I noticed that the monitor connector is different (ADC). I already have an adapter that will allow me to hook up to a "normal" VGA monitor with my DVI output on the Mac Mini, but I'd love to know if I could use the Apple 17" M7649 LCD Studio Display with an ADC hookup? Does the Mac Mini have the capability?

Thanks
