Hi everyone, and apologies in advanced for the long post. 5 years ago I bought the Mac mini after my husband enjoyed his so much. The machine I got was late 2014 MacMini, 1.4ghz intel core 5, 4gb 1600 MHz DDR3 It’s a nightmare, always has been, and I’ve just put up with it for 4 years. Slowest thing I’ve ever owned. I wait several minutes for web pages to open. God forbid I run safari and pages at the same time. Prior to that I had the MacBook Unibody, around 2010 or so... and prior to that I had an iMac in the early 2000’s. Also have a 2nd gen iPad. Admittedly, I went low end with this Mac, due to circumstances, but since every Mac product I’d ever used before was quality and worked as expected I figured I didn’t need to pay a premium. Leave it to me to buy a Mac that can’t be sped up with more ram. Now I’m gun-shy to order another computer, either used or new, I’m not sure what specs I need. Can someone give me a little guidance. I’m considering another MacMini and also the iMac. I don’t need an iMac, but if it has faster speed then that’s what I want. The computer is used by me and my kids. Heavy surfing, processing invoices, Adobe, writing using Mac apps, photos. I’d like to be able to edit home movies. Kids use it for coding, fortnight (fml), Minecraft. I was hoping for refurbished, and if I buy it I’d like the ability to upgrade it at a later date. Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions!
