I have the latest Air, fully specced. 2ghz i7, 8gig ram, SSD. Intel Graphics 4000. New Mini is 2.3 i7 4core, same intel 4000. I have 8 gigs of ram for it already sitting in a box, and then I can get a Fusion drive which I don't really care about. I don't need the storage though, my Air only uses about 120gigs. I really want one for my home machine. I have a Thunderbolt display already. I just don't see any real gains over the Air as far as heavy design work. A bit more processor, but the same ****** graphics and screen tearing and bad redrawing as the Air. No SDD speed boost. No ram boost. Is there something I am missing? Or is it really just not worth the cash for basically a $1200 i7 upgrade?????? Please weigh in.
