Wow they look pretty good. The Open GL test is a suprise at 122, heck the Powerbook is at 117. I would have like to seen those numbers if the mini had 64mb video and a 5400rpm hard drive.

Great link. No offence to the link above "barefeets" but I really trust Macworld. I Feel bad for all those people that got eMacs for x-mas. That thing is HUGE!

AnandTech has a great review of the mini and some insight to performance.

That is a great write up! I am still wondering in 256MB of memory would be ok for the casual user (like my parents).

If it was just to do email and surf the internet, maybe your parents could get by. For 90% of the users out there 512mb is the minimum I would recommend they have of OSX.

MacWorld benchmarks basically say the Mini is faster than the eMac. I have the 1.42ghz and they only tested the 1.25. I cannot wait to see the 1.42's benchmarks Smile
