+1 I'd be going for the dual core i7 with the AMD graphics, it's a pretty well speced out machines.What sort of office work requires that much power?
Secret office work? SPY office work? Secret spy mega office work?
I think the new mini is a beast, especially the one with the AMD graphics. The server model is pretty neat too, so much power in such a tiny desktop.
What are you planning to use it for? To be honest you currently don't need any more CPU power for an office computer and typical tasks. What would make it a lot faster is a SSD.
Apple can only make a mac mini with a quad 2.3 i7 and a real gpu if they bring back the brick. I for one would want that machine it could be close to the equal of the top end macbook pro 15 inch with it being equal to the better cpu option and a bit less then the gpu in the 15 inch mbp.
I would probably get the dual with the AMD GPU. The GPU does a bit of the work, and the 2.5 i5 is plenty to handle PS, as it doesn't really take advantage of the quad too well anyhow.Hi Philip, I need your advice.
If I do no gaming and not much
video transcoding but I do plenty
of Image manipulation using
PhotoShop as well as a few other
Photo App's, what would be more
important for my use.
Better CPU or better GPU? Which
mini would you recommend?
+1 for the Dual Core i7 with the 6630M, you'll have more than enough power than you need not to mention far more graphics grunt.2.7GHz...Dual Core...i7 Turo Boost Hyper Threading Processor
with the AMD Radeon HD 6630M with 4 Gig's RAM and one HD for $899,
I have to agree. that this will work billb. i ordered a few 2.5 models to mod I will keep one and sell the rest. I think most users will find the 2.5 at 799 or the 2.7 at 899 will be golden.+1 for the Dual Core i7 with the 6630M, you'll have more than enough power than you need not to mention far more graphics grunt.
This is the model I am buying myself
