Currently my only machine is my RMBP, I use it with an external HDD, while connecting to a Dell Monitor. I carry my laptop to and from work half the time and when I get home I have to connect all the cables to the monitor, speakers, and MagSafe2 just to on the my computer. bottom line is, Im sick of doing this all the time. So im thinking about getting a base Mini to do basic stuff. has anyone done or thought about doing this as well?
