I am about to order a new mac mini since with the educational pricing is a lot cheaper than buying a refurbished model with specs that I do not want. So here it is. 2.6GHZ quad core i7, 4GB of ram(upgrade myself later), 256 SSD or 1TB fusion (undecided), magic trackpad and apple wireless keyboard. Total price is $1,187 with discount. Anything else I should know before placing the order would be appreciated! P.S-I plan on buying a dell or other name brand monitor from amazon or local retail store. Thinking around 27".
