    Ok, so is the base 2011 that much better at ripping and encoding movies then the 2010 base mini?

    I would assume the speeds are the same for ripping and encoding is a little quicker on 2011 base mini

    Has anyone tested this?

    I'm guessing pretty much all the testing outfits have tested that. Use Google.

    there are tests on site. the 2.66 c2d mini does a 10min cartoon of big buck bunny in 22 minutes the 2.4 c2d takes 24 min

    the 2.3 does it in 13 min if it has enough ram. 4gb at least. IIRC

    as far as c2d vs i5, you cant use clock speed for much because the i5 runs MUCH faster per clock than an old c2d.
