I have a 2009 mini and I upgraded it with 8gb and put an Intel x25-m SSD 80GB. Wondering how well it run Lion etc. I subsequently bought a MBP a few weeks ago (a clearance 2010 MBP for cheap) since I needed to work away from my study room at times. My needs: * tinker with xcode for iphone/ipad dev for fun .... thats it! For that I have noticed that 8GB does wonders to the build speed * I have a powerful Linux server for the rest of the stuff The 2010 13" MBP is a 2.4Ghz C2D (will upgrade RAM and SSD etc). I wonder if the mini is an extra box sitting there, in which case it will go to CL/Bay. Thx!
