My confusion is with the higher end Mac mini model compared to the higher end iMac and higher end MBP (see the items in bold text): 2.3GHz Mac mini Specifications: 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 4GB memory 1TB hard drive1 Intel HD Graphics 4000 OS X Mavericks $799 13-inch: 2.6GHz with Retina display Specifications: 2.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz 8GB 1600MHz memory 512GB PCIe-based flash storage1 Intel Iris Graphics Built-in battery (9 hours)2 $1,799.00 27-inch: 3.4GHz Specifications: 3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 Turbo Boost up to 3.8GHz 8GB (two 4GB) memory 1TB hard drive1 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M with 2GB video memory $1,999.00 I'm not an expert, so I may be wrong in my assumption, but it appears that the Mac mini is both cheaper and more powerful than the other two listed items. How can this be since the Mac mini is supposed to be an entry-level machine? Can someone help educate me about this? I plan to buy a Mac mini, Core i7 model, in April simply because it is the only one I can afford. But it looks like I'll be getting more than I expected.
