    Apple products are getting expensive. This trend won’t sustain the company in the long run. I think Chrome OS will improve in the future and compete with Microsoft & Apple.

    An old 8th gen i5, 256 SSD with 8Gigs. A complete ultra book laptop with an average 70% sRGB gamut HD ips panel, one can buy for around half today. Who will pay double for this bare bone setup. Oh wait, this is targeted towards less tech savvy iSheeps/iZombies. Pls accept my apologies. This will also come loaded with 2hrs of Apple keynote Oct 2018 "Storage space warning".

    I’m going to wait, this is the last of the Intel Mac mini. I’ll wait for their new processors.

    Can users expand the memory like the 2012 version or is it soldered and locked?

    I will not buy another Mac as long as they are soldering in the SSD and RAM. As a Mac user since the early days, it is sad that this day has come. At least I have a 2010 Mac Pro upgraded to the hilt which should be good for another decade or so as well as a 2012 Mac mini and 2011 imac which are still perfectly fine. It pains me to say but my next computer will most likely be a PC. I won't pay twice the price and get half the computer and not even upgradeable or fixable if the RAM or HD fails.

    £799 for i3. Stick to Hackintosh unless you need the portability. The Hackintosh community has never been more accessible with even support for AMD.

    These are still underpowered and priced beyond reason.

    Does the 128GB Mac Mini have enough space for a Windows Bootcamp install?

    For Steve Jobs, Mac mini was supposed to be a budget entry Mac for those looking to switch to Mac but can't because of the sky high prices. $500 was the perfect starting price, but now it's $800 and only has a lowly i3, 8GB RAM, 128GB soldered SSD and slow integrated Intel 630 graphics. Don't even get me started on the ridiculous astronomical prices for RAM and SSD upgrades, $1,400 each for 64GB of DDR4 RAM and 2TB SSD. Hell, I just bought my 2TB SSD for a whopping $300. Mac mini was neglected for four years and now became another overpriced toy in Apple's lineup. Disappointing! The Apple tax is real and HUGE, you guys!

    To be honest, on a different side of the coin, this is quite compelling for someone that wants to exist in both worlds (MacOS and Windows), specifically the Windows side for gaming. As a gamer, I want to be able to use Windows for gaming, but having the MacOS for everything else is very intriguing. I already have a 4K monitor, gaming keyboard/mouse/soundbar/etc. An eGPU box with a GTX 2080 Ti would be incredible, considering the 8th Gen i7, large SSD, large memory capacity, etc. Pretty good stuff here o_o ~!
