Could someone please explain the difference between dual and quad cores for everyday use on a Mac Mini? I'm guessing most people who have a Mac Mini are not doing *really* processor intensive work on it, otherwise they might have gone for the Pro. For example, If someone were using a simple word processing program, say Nisus or Pages, would it ever use four cores? Perhaps if a Pages document was very long with lots of images? Therefore, for many usages would the dual core i5 (2.5) be faster than then quad i7 (2.3) as the the dual has a higher single core clock speed? Or would the higher cache of the the i7 come into play? Or does a i7 simply do things faster just because the architecture of the chip is different? Also, could someone give some common examples of apps that would utilise all four cores? And is this utilisation dependent upon how the software dev has set his/her software up, rather then the hardware determining to use four cores? Thanks.
