Hi guys, I've been a MBP user for 7 years but a complete n00b really when it comes to techy stuff so please bear with me and apologies for my ignorance! In fairness this isn't really a technical question just more of a financial / performance dilemma. I will be starting my own business in March and will need a desktop setup with dual monitors (Benq gw2270hm) that can handle the following. Heavy multitabbed chrome usage. Multiple word and excel docs open. Outlook. Maybe a couple of PDFs. So nothing hard-core but quite a bit of multitasking. My dilemma is do I go for the new mini 2018 and would the base level be sufficient for my needs (i am thinking yes but opinions welcome). This will cost me 799 UK plus keyboard. Monitors and everything else I have. Benefits are warranty, future proof machine, peace of mind. Negatives are quite a large outlay compared to second option... Second option is get a second hand mac mini 2012 I can get one with trackpad and keyboard for example for £300 which has 16GB RAM and 240 SSD. I5 2.5ghz. Apparently runs like a dream. Obviously a cost saving there which is important given this is on a tight budget and starting a business. However I forego the warranty, piece of mind and I guess it can go bust at any moment. Also buying of a random seller. Trusted but random. Additional benefit of new is I can claim as a business expense and claim the VAT back. So my question is are the specs on the base model good enough for my needs and is the additional financial outlay worth it compared to getting a second hand 2012 which has been specced up a reasonable amount. Any input hugely appreciated and thanks in advance!
