Bought my i7 2012 model mini in August of 2013. So I've had it for nine months now and it's been a good machine. I bought it mostly for video editing but it has become my daily desktop at home. I also have a late 2008 macbook I use for casual stuff and at work I use a PC for editing. The company I work for is PC only, unfortunately. I've recently realized some of the limitation of a mini. The inability to drive 4K displays (whcih I would like to purchase) and the inability to use da Vinci Resolve. Both because of the intel GPU. I can't afford a Mac Pro so I was thinking of selling the mini and using the money to build a hackintosh with a better GPU. I'm wondering if anyone else here as jumped ship from a mini to a hackintosh or also built a hackintosh to go along with their mini (for whatever reason) and if so, what has been your experience? I had considered building a hackintosh before buying the mini but went with the mini instead because for the price it's a great setup and it's a true Apple product. I knew the GPU was less than desirable but didn't think it would be that big of a deal for me. But I'm learnng maybe I was wrong.
