    currently i have a mac mini with a core duo 1.83 and it does everything i need.
    but in after effects its a bit slow, still usable, but rendering takes awhile and the menus have a lag to them.

    now would jumping to the 2.66 core 2 duo make after effects CS4 noticeably faster?

    Yes, you would notice a huge difference. The difference is almost 1GHz.

    As the previous poster said, you will see a huge performance difference. Especially since I am guessing the iMac has more ram than the Mac Mini.

    I went from a 1.83 CD 2GB RAM Mini to a 2.93 C2D 4GB RAM iMac....for things like CS4 you'll notice a HUGE improvement in speed.
