    I have used magic minipreps and am very happy with the quality of the
DNA isolated.  We have sequenced it both manually and by machine.  Promega 
states that the resin can bind 10ug --- that seems correct in our hands.
Personally, I have done 18 minipreps in 45 minutes with no distractions on 
once (and have had too many distractions since then to work for that long without interruption).

There was a discussion of these miniprep methods several months ago.
