Unlikely -- the new Mini's have Intel GMA950 Graphics Processor and =
there is no upgrade available. In the PC world, Intel-based OpenGL =
systems are plagued by poor performance and compatibility problems. It =
would surprise me if that wasn't the case with the Mac Minis too as =
well. I've never heard of Intel supporting stereo-graphics.
As for the MacBook Pro laptops, caution is also warranted -- watch the =
discussion boards for reports from early adopters.
Though I strongly endorse Mac OS X as an operating system for scientific =
visualization, the only Mac computer systems I can recommend purchasing =
right now (based on personal experience) are: (1) the iMac Core Duo, and =
(2) the PowerMac G5 Quad with the Quadro FX 4500.=20
