    Hey all, I was looking into buying a Mac Mini or a Mac Pro seeing as I have a great HDTV to use as a screen. After deciding my budget, the Mac Pro is out of reach so I look into the Mac Minis.

    Anyone else find it weird how the Mac Minis use i5/i7 dual core but not i5/i7 quad core? In my opinion, it'd be sweet as heck to have a Mac Mini with the specs of the i7 quad imac am I right? :confused:

    Also, I'm looking to buy a mini to use for schoolwork, programming and some gaming like starcraft II and diablo III. Should I just wait for the next refresh?

    Since the Mac mini always used parts the iBook or MacBook and 13" MacBook Pro used, notebook parts, it always was that "lowly" specced.

    Maybe have a look here to see the Mac mini's irregular release cycle.
