No it's ok. Today I am working successfully all these apps through a Macbook Air 2015. So this means that this machine will be ready for my job. My problem is the durability of the machine. Because it is two years old already and there is a successor to that also.I understand that you can't buy fron the US, but can you buy directly from Apple? I know this is possible in some other EU countries, and they have access to the refurbished Macs.
I don't work with xcode, but am guessing that 8gb of memory might be a problem - 1.5gb is allocated to the onboard graphics, which only leaves 6.5gb for everything else. You can upgrade the memory yourself, but it involves taking the Mini apart and Apple does not officially approve of that.
But the price is already too high... What is the difference between 699 euros?You can get the same i3 computer brand new for about 573 + 16 EUR postage fee from UK on eBay.

So what is a fair price dude for a machine like this? Let me explain to you what I am trying to do.
I am a happy owner of a mac mini 2011 currently working web development
I own a Macbook Air 2015 (that that was upgraded on 2016 with 8GB Ram) for mobile app development (XCode and Android Studio)
I am planning to pass 2011 to my daughter to learn about Macs and replace it with a new and then replace my MBA with an ARM Mac.
What do you advice me to buy?
I am totally confused.
Thanks mate. I will try to watch some sellers in order to find one cheaper. I don't want to invest more on a Mac Mini.
As I said, I am covered with MBA 2015 for updated software and get one new Mac Mini just because I like desktops.
My expectation is to invest on an ARM Mac in the near future.
