    Core Solo isn't worth 479

    The only reason the Core Duo can beat the original PPC mini for 3d is because they can run their software OpenGL on the second core while you're running your application on the first... and even then it's slower for T&L.

    Used Power PC minis are still selling for over $450, that's a three year old computer going for only $50 less than when it was new... IF you can find one for sale. People aren't running out to upgrade to the Intel model, and they won't until Apple puts a real GPU in it.
