Default Re: wicth mac mini for protools?

On the Apple website it says that all the Mac Minis are dual-core (except the Lion Server) but I can only see a 2.3GHz i5, 2.5GHz i5 and a 2.7GHz i7 (all dual-core).

As far as I'm aware, these should all run PT9 pretty well depending on what you want to record with. Remember you need a 2nd hard drive to record to (either internal or FireWire) and it looks like you will need to upgrade the hard drive to the 7200rpm version.

This is my understanding; others may chime in with better info.

2011 27" iMac
3.4 GHz i7
500GB G-Drive Mini (FW audio drive)
Mac OS X 10.7.3 (Lion)
Pro Tools 10.0.1
Mbox 2 Pro (connected by FW)
