    When to expect ARM Mac Mini?

    It seems like the first set of ARM macs will be MacBooks. With Apple saying the transition period will take around 2-3 years, when can we expect an ARM Mac Mini? They seem to have neglected it and it is due for an update having only 8th gen CPU atm. Only other current mac with 8th gen CPU is...

    Macmini 2020: buy or wait?

    I have been postponing purchasing a macmini. The 2020 update is very disappointing. It shows a 'new' badge, but there is not much new about it. I would have expected a processor update with improved video performance (to properly drive multiple displays). I would have purchased a i7/64GB/1TB...

    Hey guys, when I eject USB drives on my MM2018 the drives spindown after eject as expected, but then they just spin up again (staying unmounted from the OS tho). Never happened on my other Macs, is it happening on yours too? Thx!
