I have been limping along with my late 2007 Aluminum 24" iMac with a 2.4ghz Core 2 Duo / 4GB ram systems for years now. The system is VERY sluggish and I suspect the hard drive is ready to die again. I'm debating if it's worth getting the i7 Mac Mini for $200 more. My mac is used primarily for iPhoto (have to keep the library to only 1 year as my HD is too small and the iMac become unresponsive when I pull in the entire library (200GB or so), iTunes (music storing and syncing, no videos), email and web. I would love to go dual drive (SSD and 1 large internal drive), but I am not sure if the new Mini supports that. Would also upgrade to 16GB of ram. Does anyone think it's worth the cash to go for the i7 processor in my case?
