Picked up a 2018 base Mini on eBay this week. Was advertised as like new, with less than a month's use and it looks it. Replaces a DOG slow PC that was probably 8 years old. Didn't want to move it to Win 10, so I made the jump to Mac OS for my desktop. I already have a MacBook. After about 48hrs of use, I am loving it. Its the base model, i3, 128gb storage, 8gb RAM. So far it seems to be holding up just fine, but I plan to add an external SSD and upgrade the RAM. The biggest adjustment that I am having is the lack of fan noise. I never realized how intrusive fan noise was, til it was gone. What a difference!!!
