So MacRumors posted the first benchmark of the new Mac Mini 2018. Here's how it compares to my current machine, a Mac Mini 2012 (MacMini 6,2): https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/compare/10599629?baseline=10604657 Roughly 50% improvement in both single core and multicore scores. But the 2018 config costs $1,700 (32GB memory) compares to my 2012 config which costed $1,100 (mid-tier $800 + $100 self-installed 16GB memory + $200 self-installed SSD). I know the RAM amount is double on the 2018 config so I'll throw in another $100. So after 6 years, I have to throw in another $500 for 50% gain in computing power. Worth it?
