Why is it 2x faster?
The main reason why Mac Mini 2011 is 2x faster than the older Mini version was because of the Intel Core i5 processors that is installed on it by default. You just have to choose from a 2.3Ghz or a 2.5Ghz i5 processors. (Take note that it has a $200 difference in price.) It comes with the Mac OS X Lion.
But if into something really fast, you can also configure your Mac Mini to have the Intel i7 processors with 2.7Ghz processing power! OS? Mac OS X Lion Server! (Guys, this costs $999!)

Just a discrete AMD Radeon HD graphics processor with 256MB of GDDR5 memory perfect for intense gaming experience and HD video editing, enough said.
The new Mac Mini also features the newest Input/Output Interface named Thunderbolt (aka Light Peak from Intel). In term of transfer speed, it is 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and bragging that it is up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0!
