Option for two different Mini configs. Mini 3.0Ghz i7 8GB RAM 512GB SSD - refurb - $1,269.00 Mini 2.8Ghz i5 16GB RAM 256GB SSD - new - $1,199.00 I ordered the refurb and will be getting it this week but jumped on it because it looked like a good deal. Going from a quad-core 27" iMac to the Mini w/ Dell 34" Ultrawide 3440x1440 screen, and will be mainly using Mini for Safari, Mail, Quicken, iTunes for sync to iPhones/iPads and server to Apple TVs, along with occasional Pixelmator (very light). No real video editing, except the occasional GoPro footage. I usually prefer more RAM, and am concerned after having 24GB in my iMac that the 8GB refurb is not enough. Obviously each user is different. Which Mini would you go for? I'd prefer not to BTO it and get into the $1,399 or higher range by bumping the CPU or SSD on the new config.
