I have a chance to get a 2014 mini with 2.6 GHz, 16 GB RAM, and 256 PCIe SSD for $650 here on local CL. Been doing a lot of research about the 2012 quad cores and how they stack up, but I know there's a bunch more differences other than the CPU. If you don't necessarily need the quad core, the 2014 seems like a decent deal at this price range no? 2x Thunderbolt 2, ac wifi, TRIM support for SSD, Iris graphics over HD4000, PCIe SSD over SATA III Even if you were lucky enough to get a 2012 refurb, regardless of the specs, the parts are still an additional 2 years old. Plus I want the ability in the future to drive 2x 2560x1440 displays, which I don't think would be achievable on the 2012, even with an active HDMI-DisplayPort adapter. For conparison, a refurb 2012 base quad core, would have to upgrade myself for RAM and SSD and adapter. 580+70+80+80+tax is around 850ish. Should I just jump on this 2014 deal for 650? Same price on Apple BTO is 1100+tax new. Any thoughts?
