    Has anyone done benchmarking to compare the prior generation Mac Minis to the new C2D Mac Minis? For instance:

    1.66 GHz Core Duo (stock) vs. 1.83 GHz Core 2 Duo (stock) - same amount of memory.

    1.83 GHz Core Duo (stock) vs. 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo (stock) - same amount of memory.

    Just curious to see real-world benchmark comparisons on the Core Duo models vs. the Core 2 Duo units.

    Thanks in advance if anyone has this info or can provide a link to it somewhere.

    Note: I am aware of the stats posted on the right side of
    but a third party, independent set of benchmarks would be nice.

    The gap between the 1.6 CD and the 2.0 C2D is pretty big, for example - the 2.0 C2D can handle, with a considerable amount of ease - 1080p video.

    I'd have to agree that is the biggest practical speed difference
