I’ve got a choice to make within about 24 hours and am seeking insight. My choice is which Mac to keep - either a mid-2012 rMBP 2.6 i7 8GB/512GB Intel 4000/GT 650M (Samsung SSD and Display, with no issues or artifacts) and about 15 months left on AppleCare that’s been used in a controlled environment (humidity/dust/movement) with an external keyboard and monitor OR a refurb 2012 Mini Server 2.3 i7 4GB/2x1TB Intel 4000 (delivered about 12 days ago but not opened yet). This rMBP used to be my daily driver until it was reassigned about a year ago - there isn’t a scratch on it. One of my employees retired on Friday and returned the rMBP - I was going to setup the Mini Server this weekend, but have one more Mac than I need now, and still can return the Mini as I’m still in the 14-day return window. The way I see it, I will have a (roughly) $1200-1350 used Mac when I’m done deciding. My needs for this Mac are pretty simple - to connect to an HDTV and DAS, serve some files part-time, host my mostly-music iTunes library (I have iTunes Match), and Airplay to an ATV. I haven’t used any of my Macs to host/serve video, and also have offsite file storage. This Mac will not be my main Mac, and I won’t be using it for file editing, although a client might use the Mac for that in a Guest account - I do all of my heavy lifting on my current rMBP. rMBP Pros: built-in battery/display/trackpad/keyboard, SSD (no trim issues!), already paid for. Existing hardware (trackpad/keyboard) have been very lightly used. Cons: 15 months left on AppleCare, expensive repairs will follow that. Have to deal with CL or eBay loonies. Mini Server Pros: larger potential internal storage capacity, up to 3 years available for AppleCare. Easier potential return - I’ll be two blocks from an Apple Store on Monday if I choose to return this unit, so not too far out of my way. Cons: costs of 16 GB RAM upgrade, keyboard/mouse, optional SSD upgrades. TRIM issues under Yosemite if I install a 3rd-party SSD, more cables to deal with. I’ve also considered returning the Mini Server and selling the rMBP and buying a refurb 27” iMac - there’s a unit with an i7 and a 512GB SSD that might suit my wants. Feedback? My return grace period on the Mini ends Monday. What am I missing? Thanks, in advance. Have a great weekend!
