Dear Mr. Cook Dear Mr. Schiller Dear Mr. Federighi Dear Mr. Ives: Sirs: In the past few years it has become apparent that you want to control every use of your product - soldered RAM, difficult to impossible Storage replacement, etc. However, there was one product that earned the affections of millions. The Mac Mini. That affection was earned precisely because it was so easy to upgrade by oneself. YouTube shows a cottage industry of videos on how to upgrade the older Mac Minis in both RAM and Storage. A true gem. It broke Apple's mold in that it attracted tinkers who are usually attracted to Linux and Windows computers. These people were not attracted to Apple's turnkey identity, but gloried in the challenge of upgrading their own Apple product. The 2012 Mac Mini server class with quad-core i7 power was a professional grade machine which tinkerers turned in processing beasts. But then you gutted the 2014 Mac Mini, dropped its quad-core option, soldered the RAM, and made storage almost impossible to upgrade. Overnight, the older model became more expensive than the newer ones. That was three years ago. It has been five years since Apple released a quad-core. Can you allow the Mac Mini to be Apple's one tinkerer line?...The one line which earns the respect of hackintoshers, and do-it-yourself PC enthusiasts?! Can you bring back the Mac Mini with an i7 quad-core option, upgradeable RAM, and easily changed Storage? You won't loose those technologically challenged people who still want a turnkey operation. They will always be there. But you will gain back those people who fled Apple to build hackintoshes. Think about it! Signed Mini-Replacement. Apple reads this forum, and someone should get this to the big four above. If you agree, say so in the reply.
