    You should mention its complete, dead silent operation. I've never had a computer this quiet. Even when I'm pushing it to its limit, the new Mac mini makes no noise at all. You can't even tell it's on if the screen is off.

    I'm a pro Graphic Designer and I have a MacBook Pro 2018 with 16GB...very happy with it. I had long ago a Mac mini and it was fine..but this Mac mini looks really nice for Graphic Design....I don't use 3D..just PS, Ai, ID and few others plus web developing having an small computer like that (I don't like the towers) is a really nice thing. I don't play games on my computers, games for mobile or my iPad. so there...

    Apple went from innovative premium products for a premium cost to nicely designed and okay-ish products with luxury price tag for no real added value. Seems like Tim Cook had some sort of competition with other mega corps who can charge more and still laugh at the quarterly reports.

I started on logic and pretty much mastered it. FL/ ableton is like a foreign language to me. i tried hackintoshing, though it just never worked out. I hate how apple restricts everything, and they even started to lock every hard component like ram upgradiblity within the last few years just so you pay more. i hate being in the both sides of the war fellas : /

    When will this myth of excess heat causing such an early death die out? In practice I've never seen it happen, I've been building PCs and overclocking for years and not once has a processor died. I didn't even have the best cooling and despite that the processors endured along with the motherboard in all instances. My first processor OC was on those Athlon XPs and when I first started I just used the home fan on the side lol, it worked great. I knew little about OCing and pushed it very far and it didn't die either even while I had the house fan turned off.
    Anyway, I'm sure there is a reduction of some life but it lasting 5 years or less? I don't think so. We have ancient machines still alive today, if PC life does take a hit it's generally going to be outside of the typical upgrade cycle.
    The things that do fail are GPUs, they tend to go bad, particularly mobile GPUs appear to have a higher chance of failure as compared to processors.

    I have been using Apple gear for 18 years now. However, all their items are hugely overpriced. Every Apple product i have ever purchased was bought used. I just purchased ( December 2018 ) my first NEW Apple product. An i5 Mac Mini. Well, it was mega noisy, got mega hot and it constantly rebooted when rendering video footage ( with an external GPU ). So, i returned it and tried the i7 version. I could not believe it when the i7 acted exactly as the i5 did ! ! WTF Apple ! ! They definitely have some QC issues. And as for the Tim Cook rant on the censorship stuff. As soon as he opened his mouth the apple stock DIVED 10% ! .. I feel that the Apple Board really have to look at wether TC is still a good choice to be the ‘Big Cheese’ at Apple ? It’s time for a new ‘boss’ who will hopefully bring some new ideas and products to the table. And stop the OBSESSION for making everything even THINNER ! Perhaps if the Mac Mini was 10mm HIGHER they could fit in a more efficient cooling system ? ( Oh, and bring back the headphone jack to the iPhones ! .. And don’t get me started on what they charge for RAM UPGRADES ! ) … I won’t be buying ANY new Apple products as long as Tim Cook is still ‘at the helm’ … ( Yes, i also returned the i7 Mac Mini )

    The Mac Minicule is an amazing machine. The standard i3 CPU is just a marketing name. It's a actually a good, low-power quad core. You have many mobile Core i7s that are just very sad dual-cores. The best Atom (C2750) is an 8core server powerhorse. The worst Xeon is a mistake. My point is this: don't believe the hype. I bought an overpriced white WhackBook 12 years ago because it ran the trifecta of OSes ; OS X, Linux, Windows. It was amazing. Now with the T2 chip, you can't even run remotely 'homebrew' software. You do not even own the hardware now. Software as a Service just went nuclear. I'm typing this from a 7 year old laptop. No recall on this one.

    I bought a used Hp Z600 workstation at 2016 for 550euros. It's 9 years old (2010 release date) but it has 2 Xeons (X5650) runs at 2.66GHz (3.22GHz on boost) with 24 physical cores and 48Gb RAM. I bought also a GTX 1070 and there you have it. A freaking beast with 1050euros and I'm pretty sure that beats all these apple crap...

    • MayPolBeats
      MayPolBeats Před 2 dny

      You can also do that with a 2009 or 2010 mac pro, with dual xeons (x5690), 4 hard drives (you can put more by using the dvd drive bays and the pcle slots) Up to 128gb ram and any AMD or NVIDIA video card, for ~$1000. Your computers will probably be faster, because they're newer, but still, there are choices within Apple that aren't crap.

    Apple could have saved a lot of money and made a lot of sales, by making the new Mac Mini a modified Mac Book Pro. Simply by removing the webcam, screen, keyboard, track pad, speakers & battery and replacing the charger with a power cable & the top side keyboard holes with an aluminum cover. It would be as powerful as a Mac Book Pro, but at half the cost.
    Do you think the LTT crew could mod up a prototype?

  • Some Times

    Hi there, I don't know too much about computers and was hoping you could help me with a couple of questions regarding this video:
    1) When referencing the Mac Mini's temperature -- what exactly qualifies as a 'sustained load'. I'm a student and will use the computer for basic tasks: word processing, slideshows, statistical analysis, etc. Would performing these tasks, sometimes for hours at a time, have it running at 95 degrees celsius?
    2) Is there any real need to have a dedicated GPU if you don't play games on your computer? I don't play games, but will the Mac Mini's lack of GPU affect the computer's performance in other ways?
    Thanks so much.

    What kind of annoys me on these videos with everyone complaining about apple is that most of these people tend to be computer enthusiasts. So generally these people tend to be focused technical things such as the process of building/upgrading a computer, and intensive things such as high end video editing or gaming. The type of people who think 8GB of ram is nothing and anything below 60FPS is laughable. I get it. If this is your hobby, you're probably willing to spend a lot of money on it. You're willing to put work in to have a machine that will run everything perfectly. That's fine if that's what you want.
    What commenters here tend to forget is that you aren't really the majority in terms of consumers. Most people who use a computer just do it for simple work. A majority of gamers are technically "casual". Most people who own computers just need one that works and is easy to use, which is what apple is good at. Not to mention people like graphic designers, photographers, musicians, etc. Everyone in the comments are so engrossed in the PC "fandom" that you forget how the average person uses a computer. Generally a computer can go 3 or 4 years without being upgraded. That's because most people don't need a machine that will run everything perfectly smoothly, they just need one that works well enough. Generally, for most people who use Macs, they'll be able to get a good 4 years out of it before replacing it.
    Basically, the issue is that the Macs are for a completely different type of demographic than a high end gaming rig, so stop judging people who use them. They aren't idiots, they just have different needs than you do.
    And while we're at it, stop acting like Apple is an idiotic company that doesn't get computers. If I'm not mistaken, I'm pretty sure they have the highest market value of any company in the world, and if not they're one of the highest. Obviously they know what they're doing.

    • Caleb Hawk
      Caleb Hawk Před 7 dny

      +Frank Lazar I understand that. All I'm saying is that this is obviously not a gaming computer, and this review wasn't reviewing it as a gaming computer. This isn't really a gaming channel, it's just a tech-based channel. It's seems really stuck up to say that a computer is useless bc it's not powerful enough to game.
      It's fine to say it can't game, cuz that's true. But to make a blanket statement about the entire market bc of that is just dumb.

    And since linux users often use older hardware to my knowledge, this will work out in the end. Using cutting edge hardware is often an issue when running

    I have to reiterate that my advice to all, in any configuration is that the Mac mini is a firm DO NOT buy. Based on horrific thermals, thermal throttling, unwarranted high price, poor refresh cycles. If you need a computer just buy a PC and you'll get far more value for your money in this case in addition to it being a modular totally upgradable design. Nobody should be buying Macs at this day and age. And I'll let you in on a little secret, Apple is not far away from killing Macs in general as evidenced by the lack of refresh to the line in recent decades and the removing of the word Computer from their name Apple Computer.
