New Apple user. Got tired of Windows games. I decided to go the Mac mini route and waited for the new upgrade. When I saw the new 2014 specs, and read some OSX reviews, I RAN to the apple store and got a 2013 Ivy Bridge quad core i7 with 6 MB L3 cache and happily upgraded to 16 GB memory. Ok, so I don't have two Thunderbolt ports and the greatest video oomph, but Im happy.
