    Hi Everyone,

    I currently have a year old Macbook pro and am getting pretty sick of it. Battery life is pretty terrible when I watch netflix or hulu so I'm pretty much have the charger plugged in anyways. Also the fans are load and the battery runs hot. I have an iPad so that took care of my portability needs.

    Now for the Mac Mini how quiet is it?

    Also how fast is it in launching apps and running them? I don't do anything to intensive. Web Surfing, watching movies on Itunes/Hulu/Netflix and word documetnts. However I like to have many programs open at once, such as Mail, Chrome, Messages, Skype etc..

    Would the base Mac Mini suit my nees? Maybe with 8 gb of ram? I just want it to be speedy and have a fluid response.

    The base Mini isn't going to be appreciably different than a 2011 MBP Just load the MBP with RAM.
