From all the talk here i have decided to buy a mac mini . from older posts from 2010 people are saying to buy a 2009 model . Are the new 2012 models any good ? I would prefer to buy brand new. Of the two models BestBuy sell , one has 2gb of memory with a 500gb hard drive . The other has 4gb memory with a 500gb hard drive. $300 price difference . i have 2 dacs to try it with . Is the mac mini worth the $800 or so v.s. my Apple tv or gateway laptop ? thanks in advance for any pertinant info on this subject .
