10% off all Macs this Black Friday at KRCS.

Just don’t buy an iMac with a 1TB fusion drive as they are terrible now with only 24GB allocated. Only pick a 2TB or bigger as they still have 128GB. Or ideally an SSD as they are fast.


I was hoping for Big Mac's myself 😁 Served after 10.30am at participating restaurants only.

Thanks - I bought one, a good deal - though came to £347 at checkout ...


£140 cheaper!


Apple price increases are Not to do with Brexit. They put the price up in Europe fact it's still the case that most of them cost more abroad in straight conversion...also have in the US so it's greed. But yeah so this model is like £479 direct so that's why I say I can't believe the cold votes if going purely on price and not on hatred of Apple!


yeah I've voted hot too - the mac mini is a nice device and looks good too, and I believe apple have put the price of these up post Brexit anyway haven't they?


I too prefer the 2012 and have the i7 upgraded. What I object to on this site though is it should really change its name to hotopinion because people used to vote if something is a deal but now vote because of their love or hate of a product. I still vote by deal so have some heat! Cheapest for one of these by quite a bit.

Thanks for letting me know - I've seen those faults before, WiFi failure on 4s was relatively common. Well done on getting it fixed - this is what's making me think of just buying an iPhone. Literally after being thrilled with finally getting away from iOS to an S7 Edge, I've got the 'screen stripe' failure after just 2 months and am tempted to jump into the car, drive to town and get an iPhone 7 from Apple direct along with the cover it brings.


First vibro-motor broke after half a year, I had my iphone 4s replaced. After that (in almost 2 years) Wifi stopped working and they replaced the phone again telling me that they do it because it was bought from them directly (the email said my phone was "OUT OF WARRANTY", and Proposed Resolution:"Replace iPhone and cover under EU law")


Yes, unfortunately, that model is now £549


This is a good explanation; though Apple led me to believe to avoid bad publicity, if you're sincere and clearly not trying to blag them for a faulty handset, they generally just replace/repair it anyway because the percentage of claims is so low. Out of interest, what did you have repaired?


EU directive is 2 years [each country is supposed to implement their law according to directive]. in UK (maybe England/Scotland slightly different) this directive is implemented as 6 years, however the consumer has to prove that it is a manufacturer's defect. If you're buying from other sellers they might make you prove it was a manufacturer's defect which would cost you extra money. However if you buy from Apple directly and if they know it's a common defect in the model, they would take it without you having to prove manufacturer's defect. i had my iphone replaced this way, but it was only coming to 2 years at the time. Btw they didn't need a receipt, they could see when it was bought (from one of their shops) in their systems, and the phone was a present, so I didn't have receipt or a card it was bought with

Too low res for 15": 1366 x 768


Is this the 2012 model or the crippled new one?


I agree with above comments, I have a mac book pro which is great being able to upgrade through two new operating systems and it's a few years old but see no reason to upgrade cost v performance boost etc. However the mac mini is now so overpriced for what it is. I agree would get a decent laptop for that kind of money. It's a £300 box for over £500 but hey it's apple.


I know Apple are about aesthetics, rock steady OS and just getting on with work, all that good stuff, which, an iMac with multiple problems aside, has mostly been my experience with most Apple products, but... this overly-priced 2014 dual core ultrabook spec PC in a very nice tin is long overdue an update, no? I am giving heat because if people want to be part of the Apple OS/applications eco system, they don't exactly have a lot of licensed choices.

Indeed :-)


Or you could have taken the advice above and waited for the imaginary CEX second hand stuff, possibly mismatched and not guaranteed to be the same Apple friendly spec! X)


How fortuitous. Voted hot and bought after reading the reviews. Thanks OP


No, it's not true. CEX do have a website and this is search results for 8GB DDR3 Cheapest is £22 per 8Gb (so £44 for 16GB), but CEX are not very good at listing things so there is no way to tell if it is 1.5V or 1.35V. EDIT: Also, while matched pairing is seldom important it is nice to get two SoDIMMs which are from the same manufacturer and the only way to ensure that with CEX would be finding them in a branch as their mail order (remember, postage + £2.50) cannot guarantee that.


Good stuff. If they're in stock - put a deal on here. if they're not in stock, then this is the best deal at this time. HUKD's and all that ;)

I really don't know why Apple didn't put an SSD in these. Still, you can install and run the OS from an external SSD in a USB3 enclosure and it speeds it up dramatically. I just received a refurbished 2012 Mac Mini from the Apple store and plan to put in 8GB or 16GB but was surprised how well it runs on just 4GB (plus the SSD). The unit was indeed indistinguishable from new - the only sign being the brown box.

I gave plenty of relevant information to put your misinformation right. What you suggested, won't work. Is that clear enough? Thank you. If anyone is still dreaming that it will, just search 'NUC5I5RYH hackintosh' and make your own mind up.


Try giving information instead of vague crap about things (until you google futher on the subject)


Yes and? Having a keyboard/mouse that stops working when you reboot or wake from sleep means it doesn't work. Please stop trying to mix words. You gave incorrect advice. Live with it. These NUC's are not suited to a hackintosh build and suggesting to some that they might, is plain misinformation. It's not just the graphics card. It's the WiFi, bluetooth and the Keyboard/mouse. Pretty much everything you need to run a computer.


You said the keyboard and mouse would have problems 'after a short time' I would expect a working OS for that to begin happening, now you are saying that it does not work at all. 10.10.3 works with Broadwell, if anything there may be a problem with HD6000 graphics currently until Apple pull their finger out and release their new in bring themselves up to date a year later than the PC market.

is there a guide in installing the operating system on an external usb... which is linked to the main macmini


Sure do. Read and write speeds are both 500MB/s +.


You run the system from usb!?


Unfortunately no, the 2014 Mac Minis are not easy to upgrade. If you're intrepid you can get at the internals but it's not advisable and will void warranty. I have the 2.6GHz 8GB ram version which is plenty fast as I run the system from an external USB3.0 enclosure with a Samsung 850 Evo SSD inside - gets over 500MB/s in Blackmagic Disk Speed tests. I'd advise going down that route rather than getting this version as the 4GB of ram will be a limiting factor.

I'm not convinced about these latest MacMini's. I have a 2012 one with 8GB RAM and it still permanently swaps out to VM and thrashes the disk. These latest come with 4GB max. That is only just enough to carry the OS itself.

Buy an Intel NUC.


You are right RAM is very easy to upgrade, SSD is also easy, with the right tool, iFixit sells the Second HD kit with the tools work for 2011 and 2012. Since 2011, you can run the Internet Recovery, with a blank HD/SSD, it takes longer, since it downloads the entire OS dmg. On the other hand you can clone before you switch over, or install a clean OS on the new HD/SSD before switch over.


FYI. the 2014 model is non-upgradable, the RAM soldered and propitiatory SSD, so for these upgrade you need 2011 or 2012.

Less of a twist and more of a "well that was obvious" kind of ending.


There, right there, that's a script for an award winning 'feel good' movie with a twist end.


I think you’ve missed the point, it’s just about future proofing. People buying low end computers are unlikely to want to change them that often so being able to upgrade the RAM from 4GB in say 3 to 5 years would be useful. If you don’t need to then no problem but I see no downside to having that flexibility.


With what I can only speculate is quite an underpowered and underwhelming processor and the talk of non user upgrade able memory I have no regrets having bought a second hand 2012 model Mac Mini about 9 months ago. It got beefed up to 16gb and a 240gb SSD and is impressively rapid. I'd advise anyone looking for an i5 version to consider second hand over new. They're actually not that difficult to open up and upgrade and there are some good bargains to be had. Now a Mac mini with an i7 and iris pro graphics....that'd be a tempting upgrade at the right money :)


Macs do run better than PCs but the difference is vastly exaggerated because people rarely compare like for like systems. 4GB RAM is not enough if you want; 2 screens, more than 3 tabs open per screen, any kind of media editing. Unless all you do is basic internet browsing and document editing, you will need a machine that can have RAM upgraded. And if you are in that position, you should probably get a chromebook.

Just noticed this, I think it's the newest model. I bought the 2012 version posted here a few weeks ago, very pleased with it, my first real Mac. Hope this helps someone



Not for video (there's ways around that though I think, but I don't need to look into it so I haven't bothered), but it does for audio through Kodi. I don't use Airplay though. Stopped using Apple phones/ tablets a couple years ago, and even when I did I never used airplay apart from for my MacBook Pro and it wasn't very useful for what I wanted to do (screen mirroring) it made all of the audio etc lag behind by a second or 2.


But will it blend... I mean, does it have AirPlay?


I sold my Apple TV. Next to useless IMO, mine just collected dust. A Mac Mini (2012) now sits under my TV stand, and is used FAR more often. I use it as a Plex Server/ Player, Kodi occasionally and it handles all my downloads. Frees up my MacBook Pro so it's not boiling hot all the time too!


Already have an Apple TV, no thanks.
