I am thinking about selling off my Hackintosh (Pentium D dual 2.8ghz, 1 gb ram, 250gb sata harddrive, 120gb ide drive, SuperDrive pulled from a G5, Intel D945GNTLKR, and a ASUS x300se video card) and purchasing the New Mac Mini.

How much slower do you think the mac mini would be compared to my hackintosh. I do a little freelance design at home, but mostly just surf the web and play chess. Am I better off with the Hackintosh or with the Mac mini? This is all I can afford, so any advise would be nice.. Thanks in advance.

I think that your hackintosh kicks the ass out of any mini, even the new 1,83 Ghz.
So unless you're looking for mini's small footprint, silence and beauty I would wait until 2007.

I would go for the mini, with the new update it's really a powerfull little thing, even if you go for the cheapest model.

It doesn't seem you will need anything demanding in 3D either, so the integrated graphics should serve you well.
