I was worried about fan noise and pissed off about the soldered SSD and the stupid-high memory prices but I accepted it and bought one anyway from BestBuy. What is making me return it is something I had never considered. My 2017 15" Macbook Pro has a discrete Radeon Pro 555. Graphics speed seemed laggy on the 2018 I5 Mini but even that wasn't the deal breaker. It was the video quality. Going back and forth between the 2017 Macbook Pro 15" and the Mini shows one thing everytime: The Radeon renders sharper and cleaner text and images. Pictures and Movies show more detail and look more 3D and seem to produce more "depth". You perceive more depth to objects rendered. When you look at Yahoo's home page everything POPs more with lot's of perceived depth and 3D like presentation. It looks clean and eye popping like the 27" Imac looks clean and eye popping. (Granted, the 27" Imac has way more pop and is razor sharp) The Mini's video seems flat and is not as sharp with less of that 3D like POP. Playing with the monitor controls like sharpness, saturation, color temps do not redeem the Mini. Text is not as sharp the web pages look dirty in comparison to the Radeon 555. I tried 2 expensive HDMI cables. One was Monster Cable the other was AudioQuest, same results. Tried 2 different monitors, same results. I plan to build an I5 NUC just for fun as a project and to tinker then probably resell it when I'm done playing with it. It looks like I will just have to learn to live with the dongles, cable mess, and large foot print of the 2017 15" Macbook Pro on my desk. I have a new-found respect for the Macbook Pro with discrete Radeon Pro 555. For me, the 2018 Mini was a total loser for video speed & quality never mind the soldered SSD and stupid-high ram prices. I don't understand the blind fan-boy love people on this site have for everything Apple. It is somewhat irritating because we need to seek out the best hardware for MacOS regardless of who makes it. I think the fanboys try to squash any reasonable discussion "for seeking the best or most affordable hardware to run MacOS" once people suggest using non-apple hardware. It's too bad. Apple needs to do a better job with certain offerings. I really like MacOS, I really appreciate the Macbook Pro with Radeon 555, but the 2018 Mini is overpriced and a loser for video quality. SnazzyLabs was right in all his complaints and observations regarding the 2018 Mini. You can do better for cheaper. For me I can do better by sticking with my Macbook Pro with Radeon 555. One more kicker, the Macbook Pro felt a little more responsive to me than the 2018 Mini and that is probably due to the Radeon Pro 555 and the fact that my Macbook Pro has a 512GB SSD as opposed to the Mini's 256GB SSD. The Macbook Pro was snappier in everyday use. I hope this post helps the non apple fanboys. I strongly suggest the MacBook Pro with Radeon discrete video, an Imac with Radeon discrete video, or build a hackintosh with a Radeon video card that will outperform apple hardware for less money.
