    The 2.3DC is much better than the 2.0DP in my experience. I can actually watch standard def Flash vids and not have them be grainy or like slideshows. Benchmarks say that the 2.3DC is roughly equivalent in performance to the first-gen CoreDuo Mac mini I have and I'd say that in the real world that is largely the case.

    Do you know about the power consumption comparison? I'm assuming the the DC is quite a bit better because there is less to cool.

    I don't have any numbers to back it up, but my 2.3DC kicked up considerably less heat than my 2.0DP. It's a chip on a much smaller die/process. It's definitely an upgrade all around.
