Can new Apple Minis support VGA 640 x 480?

I have a display that only works on VGA 640 x 480. Can the Apple Mini put that out? How? It does not show in the menu easily. It used to under Advanced in older Macs.

I believe, but can't back it up, that OS X went to a minimum of 800x600 resolution some time ago. You may be able to hack it in by editing a plist file somewhere, though.

You can probably search a dumpster and find a monitor with a higher resolution.

I just checked a headless brand new mini I have sitting in a server closet and the lowest it supports is 800x600

Tell me you are trying to connect a secondary display, like one of those 7" usb devices or touchscreens? And not buying a mac mini to use an ancient display on

Try this. Bidding starts at 99¢ but you'll probably need an adapter.

You could try SwitchResX utility to see if you can alter it to that low.
