New Mac Mini reviews are good
Some very good reviews coming out for the new Mini, and even the £799 base model is packing a decent punch speed wise:
"the single-core performance of the $799 Mac mini isn’t far off from the 2017 21.5-inch 3.4GHz Core i5 iMac that sells for $1,499. The iMac is only 4 percent faster. Another interesting data point: The new Mac mini outperforms the 2013 3.5GHz Xeon E5 Mac Pro by 23 percent...." "...In the Geekbench 64-bit Multi-Core test, the $799 Mac mini more than doubled the performance of the three older models. Bottom line: If you use apps that can take advantage of multiple cores, you’re going to see a huge speed increase with the new Mac mini. It’s well worth the cost of upgrading."
I need to replace my Windows work PC - a 9 year old Dell, and this looks like it'll do the job nicely.
