I have an early 2011 MBP 2 GHz i7 that I've updated with 16GB RAM and 1 1TB Samsung 850 EVO SSD. I currently use it along with my PC connected to my 27" 2560 1440 display for switching between Windows and OS X. It sits on a cooler plate which doesn't do much since the MBP's fans go up to full speed just playing Hearthstone regardless. Anyways, the MBP I have is 5 years old now. I have been itching to upgrade and am wondering about my best options. A notebook doesn't make much sense to me anymore since 100% of the time this one just sits on the cooler as a desktop PC. I also already have the new Magic Keyboard and Trackpad. I looked at the Mac Mini which seems like the best fit for my needs. However, am I right that it hasn't been updated since 2014? Also, the stupid idea to solder the RAM means I can't save money and get the 8GB now and upgrade myself. The iMac is tempting with it's 5K display but at $1799 it's pretty expensive plus I already have a display and don't really want 2 on my desk. Is my only real option to wait and see if Apple updates the Mini this year? And even if they do, would it be a worthy upgrade from my venerable 2GHz i7 MBP tricked out with SSD and more RAM?
