What is the need for more than a mini core duo? i ask this because i have adobe creative suite design premium CS3, aperture and some games. All of them run perfectly, i use photoshop for painting and drawing so it usually is waiting on me not the other way around, with the mini you can put on a 23 inch ACD at a much lower cost than than a mac pro or a 24-inch imac. The mini is actually really really fast and bests the powermacs of yesteryear with ease. Its let down by the GMA and hard-drive options but i find the GMA manages Age of empires 3, sims 2, rollercoaster tycoon 3 just fine. And i plan to replace the hard drive with the new 200GB 7200 Samson drive for laptops witch is huge for my needs, and very fast i have heard 2.5 inch drives best 3.5 inch drives because of the platter density and less head movement. I have 1.25 GB ram witch i may upgrade to 3GB in the neer future. So why do i need a macpro, when the next mini is out i will have a faster GPU and a lot more space for ram, the new chipset is ment to handle 8 GB so 2x 4GB sodimms would be great. And i would just transfer my hard-drive into the new machine unless bigger and better comes i have seen dell selling a Samson 250 GB but its only 5400 rpm i would rather 7200 rpm if only loosing 50GB. To all that say the mini is bla bla, well i say its very fast and capable a 1.66 GHz core duo is not that different to a 2.16 Core 2 Duo, the difference is seconds and not a lot of them and in most tasks you will never know, the GMA 950 and ATi X1600 are both the lowest of the low in terms of performance. Ram is the same across the board, hard drives can be replaced, and the mac mini is silent and takes up less power than a powered down mac pro, thats a powered down mac pro verses a load mac mini. Why do you need more?
