Yup I Got a Mac Mini, But I’m Not Excited


While the Mac Mini has been upgraded, I’m still not overly excited about the purchase I need to make.

    It’s funny. I’m at the same point. I want to move out the Apple ecosystem but it is so simple.

    I thought about to leave iCloud and install my own nextCloud instance.

    I look forward to your decision. Maybe it’s an inspiration to me. 🙂

      This time around it’s a Mac Mini, but I’ll likely get a Linux box this summer to and start going down the path of making my work platform agnostic. Yup, I’ll do videos and write about it.

    Linux has some distinct philosophical/engineering advantages and the Apple ecosystem can suck (especially if you’ve changed your email address and had to try to re-register in the itunes/icloud quagmire that produces) BUT STILL, the Apple machines and the Apple ecosystem is a full-on platform of services with more rigor and fewer hassles than anything else. As for the new Mac Mini… If you have been going without a desktop machine for a few years and have been relying only on a mid2013 Macbook Air… a 6-core i7, 32GB, 1TB Mac Mini seems like heaven! I love it.

      I’m totally dealing with my AppStore email and my iCloud email being different and having my AppStore downloads “corrupt” right as soon as I download them.

      I ended up with the i5 machine and will swap in for 32GB of RAM next month.
