    Basically, the Mac Mini is a Macbook without the screen/keyboard/etc, so the Mac Mini will do no better that your Macbook (if not worse).

    The Mac Mini uses ALL laptop components even down to the hard drive, so the performance would be no better.

    Yes but with the Macbook you could dual monitor. Works kind of neat.
