Since we're almost at the end of the first quarter of 2014, perhaps we should start a new thread. With it, I want it to be a pure Mac mini thread. I couldn't care less about the iMac since it is not yet forgotten about.
With a Haswell refresh, the same graphics would still be used (4600, 5100 and 5200) even on new processors correct? The i5-4258U would be fine for me but I would prefer the i7-4558U even though both are dual core.
Personally I am happy with running Lion 10.7.5 however if Mavericks is completely stable for a 2011 Mac mini, I'd be willing to upgrade. Honestly though, I'd rather wait until a new mini comes out and already has the most stable Mavericks version on it. Thoughts?
I try and avoid companies (within limits) that trade US jobs for overseas profits. Computers and TVs I can't really avoid.Getting back more on topic, has there been anything on the new mini or has news died down?
I bought a Nintendo 2DS and it was made in China. Nintendo products used to be made in Japan although I have learned from people that at one time post World War II, Japan was basically the China of today (minus the unhealthy food they shipped) in terms of appliances.
