Here is my dilemma: I owned a mac mini from 09, had 1.83 core 2 duo processor, 1gb ram, 2mb l2 frontside bus speed 667mhz. It was very very slow, would take a few seconds to open new internet browser, even when i went to type at first it was delayed at times etc... I eventually had enough and upgraded to new mac mini: 2.4 core 2 duo processor, 4gb ram, 3mb lt frontside bus speed 1066mhz. Night and day difference. Absolutely love it. Exactly what i need for every day use of browers, msoffice, itunes, iphoto, etc. So now i am about to buy new macbook air. Have been waiting years for 11-12 inch one to come out again. But cant decide on which one to get. I am for sure going with 11.6 inch one, but cant decide on specs. My income for this is limited. From research out there, seems that i will for sure do 4 gb ram, and i think the gpu being at 3 mb l2 with front speed of 800 mhz will be comparable to the newer mac mini i bought, but have questions on processor. I have one ordered right now with the 1.4 ghz processor and upgraded to 4 gb ram, should i cancel and go with 1.6 and 4gb ram? is it worth to me the extra 200+ dollars to do so? Basically im looking for someone to chime in that knows techincal stuff a bit more than i do on the processors and having SSD vs HDD. Essentially if i get this new air and it is comparable to my old mac min in terms of speed and lag, etc then i def will not hesitate to pay extra to get 1.6. But i dont want to dish out the extra if i dont have to. Any insight would be great. Thanks.
