Hi, im currently looking for my next mac. I have a 20 inch Cinema display, mouse, keyboard and external firewire hds and dont play 3d games. This makes me a perfect mac mini candidate. I do, however, spend alot of time at the computer and wouldnt mind spending more money if this would make this time more pleasant og "smooth". My options are therefore: a mac mini (waiting for the update..) or a iMac 2.66. The iMac is clearly faster but I would be buying a faster gpu,screen, etc: things i dont need. I could for less than this get a mini + Mtron 32gb ssd hd for my System/apps/frameworks. Which solution do you think would give me the most "snappiess" for the buck? With the current mini lineup (imac gives me +0.66ghz more) and with a "projected" updated mini with a2.2-2.4 ghz cpu? I mainly use my mac for "iLife-stuff":mail,web,music/videos (not editing) and coding in xcode. The last item: xcode performance is the one im mostly concerned about. I would expect that it would be very hd read dependent but the only ssd test i have found wasnt pretty: See application benchmarks: http://arstechnica.com/reviews/hardware/macbook-air-ssd-review.ars The webkit project is perhaps very "write-intensive", but I just cant figure out why the ssd macbook air cant compete with the macbook if you take mhz difference into account? Any wisdom and help would be much appriciated!
