BBEdit definitely helps on older machines in terms of speed. I'm  
using an old 550 MHz Titanium Powerbook with no L2 cache. BBEdit  
opens and manipulates documents much faster than any other editor  
I've used, including TextMate, and is very satisfying on this  
machine. On the other hand, the 117 page (and growing) math document  
that I'm working on right now takes over 20 seconds to compile to  
PDF, and I'm starting to dream of something faster in my future. Does  
anyone here have any experience with LaTeX and a Mac Mini? I'm going  
to have a difficult time resolving the Powerbook / Desktop-with- 
larger-monitor choice.
