I'm looking at a Mac Mini 2012 to replace my Mid 2010 Mac Mini with the 2.4 Core 2 duo. I like the mini for my setup with Dual HP 23BW monitors. However when using VM Fusion the speed drops dramatically. I don't do any video editing but do have a large iTunes library. I am also planning on converting the rest of the family to our world of Mavericks. I do most of the "heavy lifting" multiple safari windows active with Word, Excel open at the same time with iTunes playing. So I'm looking at 4 total users where I'd like to use Server to share the iTunes library. My thinking is a 2.6 quad core would more than do the job but would the dual core or 2.3 quad be just fine? One other thing I'd be taking the 8GB from the 2010 and swapping it into 2012. I appreciate the input. Thanks DS.
