like a lot of people trying to decide if spending more money on my mini is worth it. 2.5ghz i5 base mini is 660 euros and will be a good bit faster than my 2009 2ghz core2dueo. the next model is 200 euro more. i can write off 100 euro of that in terms of having a 1tb drive in it. so really the cost is 100 euro, which i can afford i guess. but its 2.3 ghz. it is quad core i7, in terms of gaming, and separately in terms of normal use, how much faster will it be? is it possible it might actually be slower in some things? now i know i could pay another 100 euro, and get 2.6 ghz iz, but by this stage we are nearly 50% more than the cost of the base unit. has anyone compared the two from a gaming perspective?
