Hi all, first-time poster but longtime forum lurker. Nice to meet you. I purchased a 2012 iMac, a 27-inch model with a 3 TB Fusion drive and maxed-out processor (I believe i7 3.4 GHz?), shortly after it launched. It's served us faithfully over these 7 years as our main computer but that drive is starting to show its age/wear and the display now suffers from some rather intense image retention. Anyhoo, I figure it's time to change things up. I'm considering making the switch to the new Mac Mini, the 3.0 GHz 6-core model with 1-2 TB of storage. I work as a full-time writer now and want to set up a separate monitor (LG's 49-inch ultrawide model is very tempting), so this fits the bill. Plus, a good opportunity to declutter the desk and create a much more minimalist setup. Main uses: - Writing long-form content - Research and analysis with multiple tabs open - Spreadsheets, filling in PDF forms, etc. - Backing up our DVDs with MacXDVDRipper/Converter Pro (personal use only, obviously) - Basic tasks (social media, YouTube, etc.) Would you recommend it for our use case? I've seen that it can apparently run quite hot so just a little concerned about long-term performance and durability. Thanks in advance for your help.
