There's also the new Mac pro in 2018
If no new mini... the only desktop left is iMac...
But i don't like the glossy screen.
With 4GB ram and no way to expand it later, it’s not worth more than $300 at most anyway.I'm only surmising here, but clearout sales are always a great indicator of something new coming, with a YMMV caveat of course.
I subscribe to Fry's promo code emails and am seeing some discounts on Macs, including the base 2014 Mini. The new in-store price plus today's $30 promo code discount puts the base Mini at $298 - I checked, all of the B&M stores have them in stock. I almost drove to Wilsonville to pick one up but traffic thru Portland thwarted me, but that price for the Mini just keeps going down. Cheers.
