http://shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-o...eg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0001&lang=en&cc=us i purchased 2 of these. I will let you all know how they work. 32gb ram in a mini would be nice. even if you can't get 32gb maybe 16gb + 8gb = 24gb works these quads read 32gb ram as max. http://ark.intel.com/products/64889/Intel-Core-i7-3820QM-Processor-8M-Cache-up-to-3_70-GHz http://ark.intel.com/products/64900/Intel-Core-i7-3615QM-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_30-GHz the dual can handle 32gb http://ark.intel.com/products/65708/Intel-Core-i5-3210M-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-3_10-GHz-BGA oh the price i paid was under 500 for the pair. since all the cpus can handle 32gb I think the minis could do so. once again this would be a specialty buyer as almost no user will push over 16gb very much. but what an amazing amount of power in the quad. next quarter the crucial 960gb ssd will come out. the quad could have a 1.96gb fusion with 32gb ram. if you grab the refurb for 679 add the ram for 500 and the ssd for 600. you are at 1779 some tax and a cable you are at 1850 or so. yeah it is a lot but what a machine!
