I hope so, I still ordered one of the new ones but I wanted to buy 2, holding out to see if their is indeed 2GB before I bother with the other  one. The reason why I'm buying so many is because I'm tired of waiting for Apple to allow multiple apps running in the background. I really need to run three music creation apps at the same time, so much so that I am willing to buy multiple iPad's to do it, I got the idea from Will.i AM's studio, he had to do the same thing to get...
Bing really isn't very good, especially when searching for code snippets. No. I will use Google Search for the foreseeable future as I haven't come across anything that even comes close to being it's equal. Good luck with the whole rebel thing.
 You know what I was referring too. I don't rent or buy movies from iTunes, I still buy BluRay's and then rip and encode them myself. After that I upload them to either my Google Drive or OneDrive to watch across all of my devices. I don't mind using a streaming service like Netflix or Spotify but I have no interest in purchasing media that I can only use with one program, especially a program that isn't available on all of my devices. I use the iTunes store for purchasing...
 Well those are arguments the individual will have to make when purchasing one. I personally believe the 2014 Mac Mini lineup has just to big of a performance hit to be considered a worth while update, especially over the previous generation. The only good that came out of this is that 2012 models will be marked down. I for own didn't realize just how fast the server edition with the Intel Core i7-3720QM @ 2.60GHz actually was until I made the chart above, with a score of...
Well that they took the time to post a story about iCloud being able to handle every file type. I didn't understand why this was news worthy.
But the i5 in 2012 was also in the lowest model so it's not a fair comparison. Apple should have added a quad core option and charged 200 for that, not the current anemic i7 dualcore, which isn't even the fastest dualcore i7 that's available. No, the whole line up is a mess and defiantly not worth what their charging, I believe this is the last of the Mac Mini, why did they even bother.
I can't believe just how much of a performance hit the new Mac Mini has taken, it's quite bad actually, it's in line with 2011's performance, with 2012 still being the fastest release. If you don't need to drive a 4K monitor I would buy a refurbished 2012 model with a Core i7-3720QM and 16GB of RAM. Also of note, Apple charges 200 dollars to upgrade from the 15-4308U to the i7-4578U, which is pretty ridiculous when there is actually only a 27 dollar difference between the...
I don't get it, what exactly is so special about this. I have been able to upload any file type I choose in OneDrive and Google Drive plus share for a very long time now, what exactly is different here. iCloud is defiantly catching up in the feature department which is great but I still prefer OneDrive, especially for storing my movies and photos, I just love being able to stream whatever video file that I have stored either using the web interface or a video app. The web...
The Acer ChromeBook has an Intel Celeron 2955U @ 1.40GHz which has a score of 1523 over at cpubenchmark.net, the i5 Core i5-4260U @ 1.4Ghz which is found in the Mac Mini entry model has a score of 3651, a bit of a difference don't you think, the i5 also has a much bigger L2 and L3 cache. Why are you comparing the MacMini to the ChromeBook anyway, wouldn't the ChromeBox be a better fit, the Asus ChromeBox with the i5 Core i5-4250U @ 1.3Ghz, 4GB RAM and 32GB of SSD costs...
 For someone who has been using a PowerPC Mac Mini for so long I wouldn't think you would be so picky. The entry level Mac Mini is actually not a bad option especilly after you see the break down of the different CPU's and their total scores based on cpubenchmark.net testing system. The retail price between CPU's is also interesting, though I couldn't find the pricing for the middle 2 CPU's it should at least tell you that Apple charging $200 to go from the i5-4308U to the...
