Results were collected from the Geekbench Result Browser for Macs with standard processors (i.e., no processor upgrades or overclocked processors). I’ve reported the average overall score for each model and processor combination."

those results are...

underwhelming?

craptastic?

lousy?

embarassing?

I guess it's best to troll apple's refurb section and try to score a good deal there.

They should have posted some numbers comparing the graphics. That's where you're going to see the difference warp9.

The "Mini" table tells me that the Core Solo really is a non-runner, and that the 2009 Mini is 29% quicker overall than my 1.66GHz Mini.

I think I'll just keep my existing machine -- total cost: $0.

JohnnyBoy, I'm sure you will come round and buy a new model once member modifications start kicking in.

There is potential yet for greater performance.
