There is always a better mac coming out next week. I am so glad I did not wait for the iMac Pro when I replaced my dead 27 in iMac a few years ago. Those iMac Pros are CRAZY expensive. And a pain to service if you have ever tried. I was going to try to rehab my 27 but did not want the bother unless I was sure I new the problem it had. ?hard drive. For $13,000 it should come with a genius to live in your house with you and a 5 year warrantee.

The mini has it's uses though. I have a 2008 version. If you already own a great display and just want a computer to hook up to it, it's a great option. The Mac Pro gets crazy expensive and it's real forte is creating music as the only Apple program that uses multicores is their music composing program. Now that the mini can be pretty well equipped it is tempting.

The mac mini is a nice piece to have in a family room for internet based things like netflix, iTunes, etc, but most of those things you can do with an apple TV for $150. I have been planning on replacing ours for a few years. But we don't use it often enough to make it worth the work of taking the stereo cabinet apart to change the mac. LOL. Our TV has built in Netflix anyway.

I am not sure what to make of the super fast network card though, in order to make use of that you would have to upgrade you network too.

Why did they only let you choose 1.5 Terabytes for SSD? That was odd?

New mac air no longer can be configured with the i7?????
