Submission + - Intel Mac Mini upgraded to Core 2 Duo

lostguy writes: "I upgraded my Mac Mini to a Merom T7200 2.0Ghz 4MB L2 Core 2 Duo (that's a lot to type) today and posted some early benchmarks and experiences. Regular applications are slightly faster, but I haven't done anything hardcore such as encoding HDTV to h.264 or any video editing yet. Fan noise is definitely a bigger issue now than it was before, but I don't know how much is due to cramming in a 20% faster CPU with more transistors and how much is due to the 10.4.8 OS upgrade."
