I was wondering how fast the latest Mac Mini with the 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 1GB Ram is compared to my gaming laptop. It has a 3.0GHz Pentium 4 with 2GB Ram and an ATI 9700 inside. Is there any way to know? I was thinking about getting a mini to have at home for general use, etc, but I wasn't sure. The last time I checked out a Mini at the Apple store it was kinda sluggish compared to my Dell laptop, things just weren't as snappy, which, even though it was probably only a half second slower, it was incredibly annoying. But I was there again last night checking out the MacBooks, (didn't get to the Mini's) and things seemed pretty good. I know my laptop has an actual video card inside too, so I assume that makes a difference compared to the integrated graphics. But its almost 4 years old, mind you. How would the mini do running a game like Civ4 through bootcamp? Any help would be appreciated.
