Re: Best Hard Drive Option for new MacMini

The Mini can be bought with a 2.6GHz i7 which is faster than the i5 processor on many configurations of the iMac and only 20% or so slower than the fastest 3.4 GHz i7 available on the 27 inch iMac.

The real issue is the lack of a video card in the Mac Mini. As pointed out photoshop only uses the video card for a few filters (not sure which ones).  However I believe that the Nik Software series (Color Efex Pro and Silver Efex) uses hardware acceleration from the video card.  I plan to buy the Nik software because of the special low price thats now available.

I wonder just how much I will miss the lack of a video card.
