Right now, I am using a 2007 Macbook that is nearly dead. I have an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse hooked up to it. The fans run full blast constantly. As you can see, it's time to upgrade. Since I already have the keyboard, monitor and mouse, and I don't take the computer anywhere (I did when I first got it, but no longer), it makes sense to get a Mac Mini. My question is which one to buy. I am split between the two models listed in the title. Either it will be the basic 2.6 GHz version or the fully-loaded 2.8 GHz version. I use my computer for web surfing (primarily Facebook and Youtube on Safari), iTunes, VLC (mostly high-def movies), and occasionally Microsoft Office. I intend on using my new computer for at least 5 years. Which version should I go for? Should I save money and get the basic version, or splurge and get it fully loaded in the hopes that it will be future-proof for at least the next 5 years? Is the basic version good enough to still be viable in 5 years? How much of a performance gain will I see from the faster CPU, more RAM, and fusion drive?
