    If anyone could help would be appreciated...

    I brought a mac mini about 2 months ago (gutted) however sold it for more then i paid :D WIN WIN

    So am going to order a new one today... I pretty much only use it for playing 1080p and 3D content from my connected drobo, using it as a music/picture server... However in the future it'll probably get used more as a computer...

    My old mac mini would handle around 80% of the stuff i threw at it (2.4ghz, 8GB RAM)

    I just want to know if there is a big difference between the specs or not? More so between the graphics card then the processors. £170 to me isnt a massive difference... But would like some more expert opinions...

    Thanks Again...

    Not quote sure what you are on about? There is no i3 option on the new mac mini.

    There is the 2.3Ghz Dual core i5 with integrated Intel graphics
    2.5Ghz Dual core i5 with AMD graphics
