I was a Mac user from 2007 until late 2009. I loved OS X but Apple screwed me over so I sold my MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, and iPhone. I was pretty unhappy with Apple and refused to buy their products again. Last September I finally bought an Apple product... an iPhone (6S Plus) and I've been very, very happy with it. Best Buy had (maybe it's still going on) an Apple sale and had the mini for $399. On top of that they had an open box discounted to $355 so I bought one. I was pretty worried about how slow it would be but it isn't that bad. I used it for a few hours before hooking it up to an external USB 3.0 240GB SSD I had laying around, which is now what I'm running off from. 4GB of non-upgradeable memory sucks, but I really don't notice it (SSD helps). I usually have Mail, Safari, and KeePassX open. I run other apps (Xamarin, iTunes, Pages) but I close them when I'm done with them. It's pretty nice hooked up to my 32" 1080p Samsung TV. I have an Xbox One for some gaming, but I did try World of Warcraft (I can't help but always test that game when I get new computers) and at 1080p on pretty low settings it's definitely playable.. maybe not in a raid or in battlegrounds though. I was actually surprised I could play it at all. Overall I think $355 was an ok price, I wouldn't have paid $499 for it. Hopefully they'll keep the mini's going and make them upgradeable again.
