  Super performance in a small package,  2013-03-21
By Jeff

If you have all of the peripherals (and most of you do), this is a great way to update your performance to the current standard.

After using a mid-2009 MBP 17 for years, I was astonished at how slow it was after I played with the Mini for a while. Example: Handbrake encoding on the MBP ran at 20-30 fps; on the Mini (2.6 quad I7) it ran 100+ fps.

Of course this machine (and any other you choose to purchase) is obsolete the day you purchase it. But death and taxes are inevitable as well.

I chose to max this machine out with 16G and an Apple Fusion drive, which I have not had enough experience with to really comment on, except that startup time is much faster than with regular HDDs (although the newest Mtn Lion update has noticeably slowed shutdown and restart times for some unknown reason.)

All in all I think this is a very good little machine. Should keep me going for another 4 years at least.
