Ive been considering a Mac Mini for a bit now but have been put off by all the negative press from Mac users about how poor value the Mac Mini represents with its closed off upgradability. One of the bigger head scratchers for me is all the suggestions (especially on YouTube) that your are better off buying a MacBook Air than a mini?? I mean, really? You get the same lack of upgradability, a much slower CPU, slower integrated graphics, fewer drive options, etc. all for a much higher price point. Looking at it from that standpoint I fail to see how the Mac Mini represents poor value. Seems to me the real overpriced units are the Mac Book Airs, not the Minis.
