I currently have a 2013 MBA 11" base model (but with 256GB SSD) as my main computer and I usually connect this to an external monitor when I am home and I love it. However I would like something that is a bit more permanently setup at home and that's why I am considering the Mini as it has OSX and also the small form factor that I like. So the question now is what to get. My home processing requirements are not high, I don't do any image or video editing and I have a work machine/server for heavy processing. So for that reason I considered the 2014 mini, but judging by the specs, it's pretty much the same as my MBA and if anything slower because the MBA has an SSD. Is this right? I think the main use for the the mini would be to act as a media store/server and to play the odd game or two. (I am also looking into the Gigabyte BRIX etc but they seem expensive for what they are and I really don't like using Windows).
