I have used a macbook pro 2010 i7 with 4gb of ram snowleopard 10.6.8 with a dedicated graphics card. what mac mini would be a rough equivalent to these specs? I looked at some on amazon, it seems the server variety has a quad core cpu, but a shard video or graphics card. & others with dual core have a dedicated graphics card. right now, I have Adobe CS5 design premium, paralells desktop 5.0 with windows 7 & windows xp pro, with cd ripping & audio conversion software. I do alot of photography, some graphics, like Adobe InDesign, & web coding, audio ripping & conversion from flac/lossless to mp3. Will also do video editing with imovie or final cut or other. what mac mini would be best for me? one with a qud core cpu? or dual core cpu with a dedicated graphics card? can I get a mini with both a quad core & a dedicated graphics card? I would need this to last, be fast & reliable.
