Hi gang, I'm a current mid-2011 Mac mini owner, upgraded with a CalDigit Thunderbolt dock (for 3 x USB 3.0 ports), Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM. I also have a few external HDDs. Seems to run fairly fast, but lags obviously in transcoding video, etc. With the release of the Late 2014 mini, I am starting to see a potential dead end for the mini for power users. Sure, no more Quad Core, but also the Iris graphics have no way to support 4K monitors. Meaning, if I ever get tempted by a 3rd party 4K or new/non-existant 4K Thunderbolt monitor, I can forget about any mini supporting this until at least the next generation (2 years+?). I have been kicking around the idea of a base model nMP via Best Buy. They're currently on sale, I have a coupon/store credit/etc, in order to knock the price down. Assuming I'm looking to get 3+ years of useful life out of such a machine, where do you think the base nMP will stumble first? Seems like we'll have a few options to update the PCIe SSD, and in a couple of years a 1TB drive will be pretty affordable. The video section seems robust enough for my purposes, as I'd only be doing minor video editing, and 1080p max. Am I missing any obvious Achilles heel on the base nMP?
