Not trying to prove anything here, guys, I just think it is interesting.

My old Mac Pro 2.66 Quad could run 18 Omnisphere instances and then it was done. I have already loaded 30 on the Mini and I probably could do a couple more.

Here's why:

Processor Speed: 2.0 GHz Processor Type: Core i7 (I7-2635QM)

Details: This model is powered by a 32 nm, 64-bit Intel Mobile Core i7 "Sandy Bridge" (I7-2635QM) processor which includes four independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip. Each core has a dedicated 256k level 2 cache, shares 6 MB of level 3 cache, and has an integrated memory controller (dual channel).

This system also supports "Turbo Boost 2.0" -- which "automatically increases the speed of the active cores" to improve performance when needed (up to 2.9 GHz for this model) -- and "Hyper Threading" -- which allows the system to recognize eight "virtual cores" or "threads."
Thanks for sharing the screen shot. Nice processor levels! Seems a number of people are migrating this way for a second computer.
Does this mean that you're running the mini as your main computer verses the old quad core?
