I have my 2010 MBP running ALLOT, which is fine because it handle's my tasks pretty good. I've mentioned on here before allot probably that I do allot with video encoding, video editing, streaming, etc. and I feel like my Core 2 Duo is not enough sometimes. I would like to be able to leave something running at home to do things like big downloads and large scale video encodes without me having to leave my primary computer (MBP) at home. I have a 17" 4:3 ratio VGA monitor (with the adapter for minidisplay), a mouse and a keyboard. Would getting a Mac Mini be good? Will any of the slightly older models or even the newest models perform as well as my MacBook Pro at mulittasking while I let it to function alone? Thanks in advance! Not looking to spend more than 600-700 dollars.
