I already have a 2017 13" for daily use, but I'm debating getting a 2.6Ghz mini primarily for linux / possibly Plex server, and just something to mess around with. Something low powered, that I can leave on 24/7, with Apples build quality and apple care sounds good. Is there any reason not to get one, for those uses? I had a 2012 i7 quad core, but sold it a few years ago, and I don't need that power. I looked at windows PC's, and surprisingly, it seems unless I want to take a gamble or get something that may not last, the $599 mini may be the best bet.
