I bought an HP spectre laptop in May of 2017 and it took a tumble a few months ago. While it still works, the chassis is slightly bent and one of the keys is slightly cracked. I’ve convinced myself that I want to get back into MacOS. I kind of regret even buying the HP laptop, but I thought the prices of the MBP were unjustified at the time (they still are). I currently have a 27” Acer H277HU 1440p monitor that I connect the HP to and mainly use it in clamshell mode. I am an attorney so most of my work consists of web browsing, word docs, and PDFs. My wife uses Citrix to log in to her work computer, and apparently that needs windows, so I will likely install it using boot camp. While the laptop is 95% of the time being used like the Mac mini in clamshell mode, I do take my laptop with me to hearings/meetings and will continue using the laptop for that. With all of the above being said, what config of the Mac mini would you recommend? I was thinking the i5 processor, with 16gb ram and 512 gb HD. Would a setup like that last me more than 5 - 6 years for my purposes? Is there a better monitor that the one I have that won’t break the bank? The usb-c port on the Acer blew for the second time and it is out of warranty now. Would it be a better solution to just bite the bullet and get a similarly specd MPB so I don’t have to rely on the HP anymore?
