I currently use a 2007 C2D MBP as my itunes/plex media server. Works fine except I can't use it for encoding (takes an eternity) and it chokes when transcoding high bitrate content using plex. I therefore do my blue ray encodes on my mid 2012 retina MBP (2.6 quad i7) and it does it in about real time or slightly longer which I'm ok with (using ATV3 preset). I'm thinking of replacing the old MBP server with a new base mini (1.4 i5). It would be nice not to have to tie up my retina MBP for encodes. Any one have any idea what kind of blu ray encode times I could expect on the base model?
