Also,

MacPro can do things quicker, which means it is doing things which need more electric in a less amount of time.

The Mini on the other hand will take much longer and thus may use less at the moment but more since it takes to complete the task.

A good example would be converting an HD movie.

In the end it really shouldn't matter, get what you need.

As a reminder to all who are concerned about energy consumption, the environment the computer sits in is very important.

If it's in a home where you're heating much of the year, all of the electricity drawn ultimately is converted to heat. Granted, it's not the most efficient heating source but it's not wasted, either.

By contrast, if the area where the computer is located is predominately air conditioned, the electricity drawn is even more important. Not only do you pay to run the computer but then you also have to pay to remove from the room the heat the computer generated.

Sure, healthcare in germany is free...

Americans have a world wide reputation for being stupid, but this takes the cake.

Do you actually think that everyone here has a magic donkey and if you touch its poo you get healed?
