Default OSX boot up: Dell Mini 9 vs. Mac Mini - 06-01-2009, 07:31 PM

Here is a quick video I made after installing a 64 GB G.Skill Falcon SSD in my Mac Mini.

I thought my Dell Mini 9 with the 32GB RunCore was quick to bootup OSX. But damn.... the Mac Mini is actually 14s faster.

They are both extremely quick to shut down the OS.

Check it out for yourself.

Specs in my signature.

Dell Mini 9 / Atom 1.6GHz / 2GB / RunCore 32GB SSD / OSX 10.6.0
Mac Mini C2D 2.0GHz / 4GB / G.Skill Falcon 64GB SSD / OSX 10.5.8

Bummer. I would like to have seen the Mini 9 pwn the Mac Mini. I wonder if the Mac Mini is any better running World of Warcraft?

You counted the POST screen on the Dell.

Also, you're running a Hack, there could be some driver errors, compared to a mac mini.

Dell mini 9 - OS X 10.6.2 NBI 0.8.3RC5
16Gb SSD, 2Gb RAM
