I just got a Mini, and am in the midst of setting it up..Installed LW 8.3 on it and did a little playing around with spheres, and noticed that when I hit the Tab Key (Sub-D), the spheres are still a bit faceted even with a smooth surface.

No matter tesselated or not.

why am I getting facets? The Mini is no G5, but is more advanced than my old Dual G4 450Mhz, and that old Mac could show smooth spheres.

something I'm missing?

Is the render style set to 'smooth shade', or 'flat shade' in the pull-down menu at the top left of the window?
