My idea is buy the base unit pull the i3 8300 and drop in an i7 8700t. This will be a thread on modding the new 2018 mac minis. Best buy has the base model for 800 I have some coupons so I can get a base model for about 650. I will order it and see how easy it is to upgrade. I have the new dell 7060 optiplex with an intel i7 8700t inside it. Sooo I am thinking of a swap. Anyone is invited to post here on this thread with ideas for tricking out their new 2018 mac mini.
