    How much of an improvement would there be realistically? Just curious.

    Also is it known yet how much of a difference it would be between an i7 HD 4600 and the i5 HD 3000 standard voltage?

    A variety of different benchmarks will be useful for this when released.

    I own the 2011 mid model mini I am thinking the macbook air will be better but cost wise it is a lot more.

    if I configure it with the better cpu and more ram it is 1249. I don't need the bigger ssd as I can hook it up to a t-bolt external. it would be a desktop 85% of the time and mobile on rare occasions.
