They didn't update it last year. They updated it last in 2012. They added another TB port this time around. Iris Pro wouldn't have happened I don't think. Could you have given it HD4600 GT2 with a quad core processor maybe?
Yeah personally I like the update though when someone has the opposite opinion I like to delve into the possibility. That's why I couldn't understand why you saying I have it backwards because I wasn't complaining. I want a new mini. Give me the 256 GB PCIe SSD and 16 GB RAM and I'm happy.
So now that I got my mini, I will shut up about that. I must move onto the 2015 Retina MacBook Pro. The processors that are most important that I care about are supposed to be out around late Q1 2015 though possibly could go into mid-late Q2 2015. So what are we looking at? I expect the 13" will get Iris 6100 and the 15" will get Iris Pro 6200 though do they stay with nVidia or go to AMD?
How about the iMac? nVidia or AMD?
I definitely don't agree with the decision on 4 GB for the base model. 4 GB was too low for Lion let alone Mountain Lion, Mavericks, and now Yosemite. 8 GB to me is the minimum and 16 GB is recommended.
