Hey guys, Just looking for some advice from anyone here. Let me give some background. Currently I am using my main computer, which is a hackintosh custom built PC (OS X for almost everything, Windows for games) connected to a 4-bay external drive enclosure for all my media, which is mostly iTunes based, but also Plex (Plex looks nicer on the new Apple TV than Home Sharing does). The system I have works fine for the most part, but when I switch between Windows and OS X the external enclosure isn't recognized right away and I have to power it off/on to get it to work. Small annoyance which I would rather not have to deal with. So basically I'm looking to get a dedicated media server machine to take care of all my OS X needs and media, and then keep my main computer as just a gaming Windows PC. Being located in Canada, I have been looking at Mac Mini's on Kijiji (pretty much Craigslist), and saw a couple that I was curious about. First one is a 2011 Mac Mini. I know I wouldn't need anything too powerful to do what I want, so the power from this mini seems to be fine. RAM would be easy enough to upgrade, since 2GB is just ridiculous. I'd be upgrading that pretty quickly to at least 8GB. Negotiated price down to $275...gonna try for $250. Second is a 2012 Mac Mini. From what I can tell, the only real benefits to the 2012 over the 2011 outside of processor power is USB 3.0. But at the same time, that's what is making me consider it because my external storage is USB 3.0 based. Same situation with RAM, would be upgrading that too. Negotiated price down to $475, possibly $450. My main question is, is USB 3.0 worth $200? I don't use particularly high bitrate files, though I do have a few blu-ray rips from my Transformers movies for example that are high bitrate. I think USB 2.0 is still fine for that. Anyone have any advice?
