I just got a 2.6 Ghz 2014 Mac mini with a Fusion drive. Middle of the road thing...(not the fastest, not the 1.4, fusion drive). [For info, it's not THAT much faster than the 2010 imac it is replacing (Macgeek score : single core 1950->2880, multicore: 4150->5985] I was hoping to use it with an existing 27" TV/LED monitor that does 1080p HDMI... I cannot complain too much, it works...'ish... Apparently, the same resolution that looked surprisingly good on the old Imac (1920x1024 I think) looks ass-tastic on this because this is a little bigger (not that much, they lie on size while apple is spot on) but surprisingly less clear? It's grainy. It's the exact opposite of the reaction you get when you see a Retina screen. Call it "glaucoma". Not pretty... Yosemite is not exactly forthcoming on res either: I can choose "Best for your ****** display" or "scaled" -> all those scaled options are even lesser. I think I know the answer but I gotta ask: it's the monitor right? Using a DVI adapter (no longer supplied with the mini) won't change a thing, right ? It's a friggin' TV and it's maxed out at 1080P, correct? I'm annoyed because before my move I gave away a nice 24" dell monitor which I betcha the mini could have driven to a much higher res. I kept the TV instead based on its bigger size but it's doing me no good... So my options if I still hate it tomorrow morning would be a 4K monitor ($$$) and a thunderbolt cable, right ? Or can I find a decent 24" real monitor for cheap (sub $200) that'll give me more resolution options?
