Update: Increasing the RAM to 16GB bumps the HD4000 VRAM to 768MB. Yesterday I installed 16GB from Crucial ($82) and checked the display memory.

BTW, I was surprised how much RAM was used when my usual basic apps were open but not actually being used. 8GB should be considered the minimum amount of RAM for Mountain Lion; if you plan on doing any serious work 16GB is a No Brainer.

Thanks for that info, just ordered a Mac Mini quad core with fusion drive. I also ordered a 16 gig upgrade from crucial.

My MacBook Pro has 8 gigs and running just photoshop it runs out of memory and uses VM!

Looking forward to getting the Mini it should be fun.
