So I'm considering getting rid of my long-in-the-tooth 32 Bit MacBook Pro with a 2.0 Ghz Core Duo. I can't run Lion. It's slow, slow, slow, and I think I'm ready to bite the bullet. Question: I've recently gotten into backing up my Blu-Ray movies. I use MakeMKV and Handbrake mainly to do this. Currently it takes about 48 hours for Handbrake to encode one Blu-Ray. Trading out a 2.0 Ghz Core Duo for a 2.0 Ghz Quad Core i7...What kind of speed increase would I see on a task like this? 2nd Question: For those that have really worked with some different Mac Mini models: In your opinion, is the cost increase from the 2.0 Ghz Core i7 (I think that's a previous gen model) to the 2.3 Ghz Core i7 (cuirrent gen model) worth it? I would imagine there's a significant difference when you throw in the 2.6 Ghz model with Fusion Drive but that's outside of what I want to pay for a Mac Mini right now. Thanks for any help you can provide on this subject!
