    It’s been YEARS since Apple has released an update to the Mac Mini, the most AFFORDABLE Mac available… But it’s not so affordable anymore. So who’s it for now?

    Why can’t Time Machine be saved to the encrypted iCloud? Time Machine must be backed up to a local hard drive, so you don’t have an off-site backup. The iPhone and iPad can backup to the iCloud. If the reason is that Time Machine needs more cloud storage, you could be simply be given the option to buy more Apple Cloud storage. Apple should be eager to sell you more iCloud storage for the Time Machine backups, so everyone wins.

    I don't know if Linus is that new to macOS, but he should know that Apple, having control of the hardware and software, makes them run well together, giving that "smooth" experience. It's not like Windows where, depending on the hardware, things will run choppily or glitch even when navigating the OS alone.

Lets not forget all the useless upgrades and most of those make the starting screen stuck to the point of computer factory reset. Blue screens and and preloaded viruses and preloaded crap. Oh wait let me go complain on Microsoft. Nice computer and video 😉

  • OMA2k
    OMA2k Před měsícem

    4:08 Why did they make harder to open the Mac Mini this time? In the 2011 model you just had to rotate the plastic lid to open it, just like a jar of jam. In this 2018 version you have to use some tool to force the lid out, which will probably scare some users away from upgrading their machine at home instead of at an Apple store at a premium. Plus now opening the Mac Mini like this will probably void the warranty, while with the old model opening the lid wasn't an issue for the warranty, since opening the lid was something expected by Apple (the lid actually had markings indicating this, so it was something that Apple used to let users do)

      But i frequently ask myself... 4K is only neccessary if you have at least a ~30-40" TV... who's got a 60-80" TV at home which could possibly allow you to distinguish 4K and 8K from each other?
      (And who's got the money for an 8K TV? Actually, there are almost none on the market, too.... so.... yeah...)

    So, I am looking for a minimalist design for gaming and based on your videos looks like best cost vs performance relation is on a miniPC like NUC or that gaming variant I don't remember the name right now, did I read it correctly ? I've watched a few videos and MacMini and MacPro(the old 2014) are far from good choices for that... So, what you suggest ? good price, minimalist design, etc...

    the Soc Intel core i3 8100 that Apple uses in the newest version of mac mini has higher performance than the previous generation intel core i5 7300HQ!!! this is awesome, for this reason that i3 hasn't turbo boost cause its base clock is higher than the core i5, but Apple haters will say : "ITS JUST A CORE I3 COSTING U$$ 799.... BLA BLA BLA.... all this without mentioning that the core i3 8100 uses the same integrated GPU of i5

    So, I became blind in 2010. I’m looking into the six core Mac Mini with either 8GB or 16GB of RAM. Obviously I wouldn’t be doing any video editing outside of perhaps some simple splicing of video to create some basic Vlogs, and thats even if I chose to work with someone on doing that. I’m thinking this would be a great computer for daily tasks and some minior music production that would rely on the CPU way more than the graphics card. Would this be an accurate thing to assume?

Me, being the resourceful genius piece of shit with too much time that I was, got him a used dell business machine off of ebay for about $230 that ripped the asshole of the mac mini. He even scored some extra ram without me, so he has 16 gb now. Still needs an SSD but fuck it, tat can wait
