    Unfortunately Apple didn't update the iMac mini this past event. My question is, would you buy an iMac mini now or wait until next year in the hopes that it will be updated?

    I would personally wait. That is if you have one now that is working. But if you need it now, then but it now. We do not know when Apple will be introducing the new ones. I was hoping at the October event and was disappointed they only did the MBP. I am wait for the new Mac Pro's myself.

    Love my mac Mini but would sure love Apple to come out with a Touch Bar version of their keyboard. That can be used on all of the desktop Mac's I want Touch ID everything.

    I would stay away from the Mac Mini. I had been a PC (dell) owner for years. I was going through computers about every 3 years. I finally decided to give Mac a try. I am shocked at how poor this thing performs. I got a 2014 version last fall (this was the latest version) I have 8gb ram and a 2.6 i5 processor. This computer is constantly churning. I get a spinning beach ball every day. I have been on the phone with Apple care, and I am told this is normal. Here are a few things I wish someone would have told me first.
    1. You can not use Apple photos while using any other app. It locks up the computer
    2. You can not have more than 3 or 4 web pages open at once, or it runs slow and could give you the spinning ball
    3. iTunes is also a memory hog on macs.

    The crazy thing is that I still have my first dell laptop from 10 years ago. I don't even know what the specs are. But I can run multiple web pages, I can run iTunes, and I can run picasa photos at the same time, and this 10 yr old laptop never gave me an issue. The only reason I don't use it anymore is the keyboard is falling apart and the screen has a hard time staying open buy itself

    save your money. get an iPad.

    Oh, I forgot to mention. Apple does not allow for memory or hard drive upgrades anymore. The memory is permantity in place, and the hard drive is positioned at the top of the machine, which means you have to literally take EVERYTHING out of the machine, just to get to the hard drive. Good luck getting it back together

    I'm definitely with you on this. The Mac Mini is an awesome little piece of tech. All you need is an external display, keyboard, mouse and you good to go

    Crossing fingers for an update during the March Event in a couple days time. Its definitely in need of an upgrade or possibly a replacement. Last updated in Oct 2014 which is a shame. Definitely needs some love 32GB RAM options with dedicated graphics!
