    Hi there, I'm looking to buy a used Mac mini and want to be sure the machine I buy is quad core. I'm wondering if all the 2.3 and 2.6 GHz i7 Late 2012 Mac mini (A1347 6,2) computers contain quad core processors or if some are dual core as well. I checked on Mactracker app, and according to its somewhat incomplete data, the available processors for this model were i5-3210M (2.5GHz, dual core), i7-3615QM (2.3GHz quad core) and i7-3720QM (2.6GHz quad core). I know there is also a 2.0GHz i7 version which isn't listed. Were there any dual core i7s available for this model at the time or were all the i7s quad core?

    Nope, i7s were quad-core and i5s were dual-core.

    I wasn't doubting you. I read the original post, and responded to the last sentence with my answer for reassurance. :) Were you notified? I didn't quote/tag you. Sorry, but I wasn't directing that at you.

    For sure, but were you specifically notified? Because you can turn off being notified when messages are posted on threads that you've responded to. I have it set to tags or quotes only, and don't receive any of that.
