Question is, after they put an item in the cart, should they be taken to the old dedicated cart page? The pro on this is that the customer knows that something happened - ie they just successfully got the item in their cart. The con is that they can see this info on the item page anyway and it might dissuade them from buying more items.
Besides, the next thing you want them to do after throwing the items into a cart is to BUY THEM so the cart is the obvious place to be doing that from instead of making them search for the mini cart and find the 'checkout' button. yes yes... we want them to put MORE stuff in their cart first... but given the choice of no check out or a smaller order... well... so lets not even get into that. Another topic, another day.
Keep it simple, give them what they expect.
