    Don’t do it, check my thread on Mac mini and Dell 2715Q.

    2013 Mac Pro - it will do 4K. But it all depends on your needs. If Mac mini is enough, then get it but not with 4K display.

    Mac mini and 4K - the 30Hz refresh limit is not usable. You may want to read this thread https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/mac-mini-2014-monitor-dilema-uhd-vs-qhd.2102250/

    Initially it seemed OK, but then I started to get eye strain and headaches. So be warned.

    The Mac Mini is ancient. 4th Gen Intel Processor. We're on 8th Gen here in 2018.
    I'd suggest an Intel NUC w/ Linux Mint or Windows 10 if you want a mini desktop.
    Otherwise I'd get a MBP or iMac if you really want MacOS.
