He says (and I reluctantly agree with him on this) that the mini is getting weaker and weaker and that Apple rather than even put in a decent core i5 (even a dual core) like I feel is in my 2011 model will instead put in a Core M processor which I feel is trash. Thus what he feels is I should step up my game if I am going to remain an Apple fan to something with Iris Pro in it. He hates Apple so in the thick of things he feels I should "get a real PC" but if I'm going to...
I'm slowly growing open to the idea of an iMac after much discussion with a friend about getting a "real" computer. The Mac mini is good but the iMac certainly has more horsepower including discrete graphics and our constant back and forth has sort of opened my mind.
Yeah the NUC is getting a decent chip but nothing that could be considered "high-end."
Is the Intel HD 520 = to the Broadwell Iris 6100 on a 15W chip? That would be perfect for a Mac mini if they made it.
Dragon Quest VIII is being re-released in Japan for the 3DS and includes some extra things not in the original PS2 game so that will have my attention for at least a month if not a few months. If the Mac mini were to be updated to Broadwell and Iris 6100, I'm not sure I would be blown away. I wish PCIe SSD was standard and not a CTO even if it was the same price as though you ordered it as a CTO. I don't want to wait 2-3 days. I have a Best Buy right up the road from me...
And I will believe me. I remember about five to six years ago I kept saying I was going to buy a Mac and I think it was someone on MacRumors IRC kept saying "Just buy one already!" I knew when my time was.
Shoot they can do that now if they wanted to and I would be happy with that. That is the issue though, because you're right they don't give proper attention to the mini. Hell it sucks that they don't go Intel HD 6000, Iris 6100, and Iris Pro 6200. So now I'm looking at the iMac and we'll see what happens there. I have become more open-minded to the iMac however I wish they would include flash storage by default instead of a 5,400 rpm HDD.
o_O The mini got updated in October 2014.
Has a future Apple event where a possible new mini been announced or even iMac? Would the iMac receive just a silent update?
Intel to me, at least on the GPU side, is on a roll right now. The CPU speeds are minimal with every generation but oh well.
