    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?

    I've used the mac mini at work for a while because it's useful for iOS app development, you can use all of your components and the specs were ok for that purpose. The size is also great. But as always with Apple, you get mediocre specs for high end prices.

    This mac is stupid. If you can't replace the hard-drive (you know the part that goes bad first)... you can't repair your computer in the future. RAM lasts way longer than hard drives do. Apple is conning people.

    OLDSKOOL978 Před 8 dny +1

    Hackintosh kills the Mac mini. I'm using an x99 edition 10, 64gb ram , 6900k at 4.2 stable. Mac osx Mojave.
    its not all that hard to setup and once you got a good setup, your good to update install drivers.. do everything as if it were a real Mac (I even use "lost my iMac") airdrop works... and my water cooler really makes this thing a final cut powerhouse.

      Then it clearly isn't for you...meanwhile everyone over there at LMG works off their 10Gb ethernet ports to a work server as a way of consolidating their massive footage library.....
      In fact from their other video that mac mini WAS actually deployed for LMG....something along the lines of windows ingest programs are not as well polished as the macOS alternatives and they were experimenting if using these as ingest stations would be better.

    Nice Apple friendly review. Did you plug in the Apple Magic Mouse and Magic Keyboard? Oh so you haven't encountered the bluetooth and WiFi dropouts that everyone is complaining about. I replaced mine (after 2 months of troubleshooting) and the replacement is no better. This makes the Mac Mini a frustrating package. :-(.

    • Hana Diamond
      Hana Diamond Před 19 dny

      I guess it depends what you compare it to. Once you go north of $2K, it's a better value to get an iMac if you have the space for it, but on the lower end, no Mac could touch it. It's the only Apple product that lets you start at a relatively low price and upgrade later. (For $1,500, you get a Mac Mini that vastly outperforms a $6K Macbook Pro aside from the GPU.) . My plan is to add an eGPU in year 2 and expand the RAM 3rd party style. I'm guessing your reaction wrt the old Mac Mini is that started so much cheaper - but it didn't have a cutting edge CPU in it.

  • Sonicgott
    Sonicgott Před 20 dny +1

    UHD 630 is a garbage graphics processor. I shouldn't have to be expected to use a eGPU. Also, the SSD is TINY. Everything else seems to be nice, though. Definitely better than the 2014 model. Dump the worthless quad core i3, though. Go straight to the 6-core i5. That low end model is a waste of money.

    So they benchmark the middle tier i5 mini vs a i9 machine and 2 core i7 machines... let’s not forget their “random” memory they installed is the slower 2400mhz and not the 2666mhz speed you get from Apple.... well done Linus 👍🏻

    Though, it's the same physical size as the original Mac mini .... and its not really disappointingly larger than a nun when you consider 1. it has an actual six core desktop processor not a laptop cpu 2. the power supply is inside it.

    I costed a (sorta) equivalent built i7 NUC from my local cheapie parts supplier and it came in at $60 more than an i7 Mac mini, but had way less ports, no real support, no included productivity software and you do have to aassemble before you can use it.
    I'm pissed off that the Mac mini runs hot and Apple restricts most upgrades, but pricewise and the finish actually beats all those mythically "cheaper" compact PCs.

    Have a MacBook Pro 2015. I use it for software development. .Net Core, altough i am a microsoft technology developer, i enjoy working on a mac. Just bought a Mac mini 2018 for same purpose, to work on it at the office. Wasn't sure about the storage, my pro has 128, and it seemed to be enough, but for the mini, i put 256. and i7. Can't wait for it to be arrive. And of course the ram will be upgraded. The main reason i bought it was because of the upgradable memory.

    My 2011 15” MacBook Pro died because of overheating last month. With an SSD and RAM update, it was good enough for Lightroom and everything I needed to get done.
    Anyways, it’s gone and I am replacing it with a Mac mini. Just that I’m pissed off with myself for failing to check the overheating thermal-paste-starved graphics chip in that laptop. I want to be careful with overheating of my new Mac mini.
    I am unable to find a dedicated cooling solution for Mac mini. Does anyone know of one? Or some DIY stuff that say placing some heat sink from an old graphics card on top of the Mac mini with some fans. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

How their business practices are designed to milk you for everything they possibly can coupled with built in obsolescence. Seriously WTF I always thought you where an intelligent person.
