Hi all, I've had an "entry level" 4-core 2009 Mac Pro for the last 3 years, which I've upgraded over time to 16Gb RAM. It has two SSDs and a 1TB HDD. I also run two 1920x1080 monitors with the stock NVidia 120 GT card. The machine clocks around 9,000 on Geekbench. I bought it, because, at the time, I'd owned PCs for a long time and liked the more conventional expansion options and it was faster than the Mac Minis of the day. Heaviest tasks I generally use it for are Logic Pro with a Firewire audio card (although I am a hobbyist rather than a full time musician), and running VMWare Fusion with Windows 7 (I need this for Visual Studio developer tools). Sometimes I might have two Windows VMs running simultaneously. Have the usual MS Office, iTunes etc. I am not a hardcore PC/Mac gamer as I have separate console for this. The MP has been a fantastic machine, which has never missed a beat, but looking at the latest 2012 Mac Mini, the 2.6 Core i7 with 16Gb RAM is getting superior performance to my MP in all areas (Geekbench of around 12,000), as well as SATA3, USB3, Thunderbolt, a much lower power consumption and footprint, and a brand new warranty. Was wondering if it might be worth the switch? Would get the 256Gb SSD built in but not sure what sort of external interface to buy for my other 2 drives. Thanks in advance for your kindness!
