I wanted to know what is the difference (in performance, resource utilization, etc) if i mention my media directory in apache's configuration vs setting up a symbolic link to static only application.

I can't really quantify the difference in hard numbers - you would need to test it yourself to do that.

You'll definitely see an improvement in app performance and a reduction in memory usage, since it won't be doing the extra work of serving your static media.
