MacWorld has performed benchmark tests on a BTO 2011
The test machine featured a 2.7GHz dual-core Core i7 processor and 256GB SSD bringing its total cost to $1499, which is $300 more than the iMac.
The BTO mini beat the 21.5-inch 2.5GHz Core i5 iMac in five of our 12 tests. Not surprisingly, the BTO Mac mini with its SSD blazed past the iMac in disk-intensive tests such as the 2GB folder duplication (31 percent faster) and 4GB file unzip (42 percent faster). The BTO Mac mini also beat the iMac in our 4GB zip test (5 percent faster), our Pages import Word doc test (20 percent faster), and our Parallels WorldBench multitask test (4 percent faster).
