. You deserve more subs Cheers have a great weekend :)

Which should you buy? None of them, they are both cheap component, low-end,
overpriced and glorified apple garbage.

4GB is a joke for both.

As an owner of the previous generation Mac mini (16GB 2.3Ghz i7) I think
the new ones are complete garbage… For how I use my computer quad core is
essential for me. I think when I next upgrade I will be custom building a
PC and then buying the 11 inch MacBook Air as I will need a Mac for Xcode
and the ability to easily record iOS devices.

That’s just Apple being greedy as usual.. In not allowing you to upgrade in
ure own time and buy cheaper components..

This one is a little harder than the iMac vs MBP. In my opinion, if you are
a Windows/Linux user who wants to switch to OSX, but aren’t ready to spend
$1000+ on an iMac or MBP, then the mid-range Mac Mini would be a good
machine. For $200 more than the baseline Mini you get:
2.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz) with 3MB on-chip
shared L3 cache
Configurable to 3.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz)
with 4MB on-chip shared L3 cache.
1TB (5400-rpm) hard drive
Configurable to 1TB Fusion Drive or 256GB of flash storage (SSD).
8GB of 1600MHz LPDDR3 memory
Configurable to 16GB.
Intel Iris Graphics
Of course this depends on your needs.
It’s getting pretty hard to recommend the MBA now. It’s still a decent
machine for those who just need it for normal use like web, light pic/video
editing, and whatever office suite you use. However, I’d honestly recommend
the non-retina MBP as it is the same price as the higher level MBA, and it
has slightly better specs plus a DVD drive.

I use a mac mini late 2012 its my first mac and I am enjoying it a lot. I
didn’t really need the air since I don’t really travel much.

Good Video, great way to show what you pay for. Better for consumers to be
February 13, 2015 at 11:33 am
If ever the old saying “You get what you pay for” is trues, here it is in
your video Dave. Both machines are compromises, in their base
configurations. Both lack the ability for user upgrades. The base models
just won’t cut it for real world productivity for most of us. If your needs
are so minimal in usage that the base model is all you need, perhaps
consider a Chromebook , or HP Stream 11 or 13 for far less,, and pocket the
difference. I agree for power get a MacBook Pro or a iMac.

You didn’t do it did you…Buy another Mac Mini that is? 😛 Know how much
you love them!
Decided if I get an Apple computer it will be the MacBook Pro, just not
sure if I want the 13″ or 15″. Thought about the Mac Mini, but as you keep
saying the new one is crap without the ability to change the HDD or RAM.
What happens if the HDD fails? Do you have to throw out the computer and
buy another? To be honest Dave, what would you have to say as to getting
one from a US store? A UK-spec one would be about £1,000 more for the
same. I’m just concerned for the warranty. I would look into ordering a
US MacBook Pro with a UK-spec keyboard, so it would pretty much be a UK
laptop, just with a more manageable price.
Thought about an iMac. As much as I like them, I like how with the MacBook
I will have similar performance and a portable machine. If portability
wasn’t required than hands down I would get the iMac.

I think it’s the matter of need for portability. If you need it portable
and you have medium budget go for rMBP 13″, if you need power go for rMBP
15″ with 750m, if you’re on budget go for MBA, if it’s your secondary
computer go for MBA 11″.
On the other hand if you do not need portability, e.g. you do not move
around a lot, or is purchasing for an office/ home go for iMac 27″. If you
do video/ photo or creative media go for iMac 5K even though their thermal
design is not optimal. If you’re on tight budget get medium or high tier
Mac mini with 8GB of ram, or iMac 21.5″.
