It's a simple question. I need a new desktop computer, and all I do is word processing and photo storage. I'd probably be just fine slapping some externals onto my 2009 MBP. Thing is, a close family member is a pretty serious Linden. I'd like to be able to go check out what he does, but my hardware can't handle Second Life. So, will a quad core mini have what it takes? Or should I, out of familial love, spring for a base Mac Pro when I can get one? Does anyone here hang out in Second Life? What hardware do you use?
