Hi all

I have a 2007 Apple Mac Pro machine which is dual xeon with 7mb ram installed at I think 2.1Ghz. I am thiking of replacing it sometime this year but with a Mac mini i7 top of the range with 8mb ram and 750 gig drive. How fast is this MAc mini likely to be compared to my Mac pro?

The new Mac pro's are far too expensive and I now prefer t have external drives than internal ones.

Thank you

'if your mac pro seriously has only 7 MB RAM, the mac mini should be able to run circles around it. that said, a modern mac pro totally blows away the latest mac mini especially when fully loaded wth RAM.

if you dig around the macsales website, there's a benchmark comparison on the effect of RAM on various digital photo editing (photoshop et al)

i'm waiting for the next iteration of the mac pro before replacing my main work machine (mac pro 1,1)

looking at the latest benchmark for medium photoshop actions, the current generation mac pro is roughly 2.3X faster than the server version of the mac mini
