    I currently have a 2007 2.2 GHz Macbook Pro that I have used since I bought it new. I am thinking of getting a Mini to replace the aging laptop. I have used this laptop mobile maybe 2 times since I bought it. Other than that it sits on my desk and serves as my desktop computer (and my only computer).

    What type of performance boost can I expect (if any) by going to the Mini?

    I don't do any video editing. Mainly I use iTunes, iPhoto, web, and some light gaming like Civilization V. Occasionally I will rip a DVD (I know that the mini doesn't have a DVD drive internally).

    Also would be interested in any recommendations for a monitor under $200 that would work well with the Mini.

    I was originally going to get an iMac but I think the Mini would serve my purposes. I will likely wait and see if they upgrade the Mini within the next month or 2. If not, I'll just bite the bullet.

    Thanks for any information!!

    Thanks for any information you could offer.

    You'll notice things launching a little faster. Other than that, not much.
