Storage is not a concern, so I'm wondering what benefit I will see with a quad-core processor for the following things I will be doing with the new mini: 1) EyeTV recording and editing. 2) HandBrake encoding. 3) Running Windows 7 64-bit via BootCamp. I think I would see the most benefit with handbrake, but would it be worth another $200? And now for a non-model specific question: I plan on taking my existing 128GB SSD and using it as the primary drive for Mac OS X. The 500GB (or 1TB) HD would be then become the secondary drive for storage of large data. Can the BootCamp partition be stored on the secondary drive also? I seem to recall there was a restriction at some point but hope that is no longer the case. Of course, I know I will need to get the dual drive kit to make these changes. I'm willing to bet the same kit used for the 2011 minis will work with the new models. Glad to read the minis are shipping NOW!
