Apparently that was the thought process going through my head when I purchased a low end Mac Mini. Funny how a 'sale' can make people irrational, no? Anyway.. I have been wanting to buy a new generation Mac Mini to do some HTPC duties, NAS, etc. and now I can. I have been looking at the Apple Canada website on and off for a refurbished unit, but it was finally shown to have stock so I jumped on it. So as I understand it, this refreshed 2014 units are not upgradeable, AT ALL. I'm thinking the specs are enough to do some light streaming over the wireless network? My router is an ancient Apple Express which only has 802.11n before ratification so I hope it's enough but as far as the Mini is concerned, I'll probably just run Plex on it and enable remote desktop so I can jump in there and run some downloads overnight, etc. 1.4 i5, 4GB of ram, 500GB HDD. No idea if the onboard Intel graphics is enough to drive 1080p smoothly.
