You know your stuff man! I've enjoyed your comments in this thread. :D

richteabiscuit

It's personal preference. I'm a professional designer, I've used macs for over 20 years. My mac is a tax deductible business expense that will still be worth several hundred pounds in five or six years. It's costing me very little in real terms. It works seamlessly for me and helps me run my business in a way that a £100 laptop would not. It will pay for itself many times over. Please don't call me a fool.

Ebuyer has this item with a release date of 18th August. I was looking for a laptop first but now I'm thinking about getting this. My budget is around £500 and I won't be able to find any decent Ryzen 4000 laptops with a decent IPS screen. So it might have to be this and I'll have to add RAM, storage and monitor and it should come to around £550 in total with a 500GB NVME and 16GB of RAM.

Mr.Bee

I love IOS & Mac but seriously second hand macs are so not worth it. If you buy a MAC mini £800 and it lasts 10 years that’s £80 / yr. very likely but what’s unlikely is buying a 2014 MAC mini for £250 lasting 4 years and no warranty!! Figures don’t add up your paying more for an old product. Are people mad!

richteabiscuit

Yes, all apple stuff is expensive. A top spec maxed out mac pro is over £50000 on the apple store!

Not to mention how much more upgradeable they were.

I have a load of tasmota-flashed devices but still don't understand the advantages of MQTT (I use them with Alexa). Is it easy enough to play with? Home assistant or Code Red?

shadzz

I'm not very into much into downloading, but occasionally it is very practical to have the tools on hand. My "home" stack also includes unifi, grafana, influxdb and mqtt server and esphome. I also have some stuff for 3d printing. I'm always open to new ideias tho, I recommend the self hosted sub reddit, always a thing or two over there

chischis

Thanks Shadzz. I'm not big on tv / film enough to want Radarr or Sonarr. Portainer looks interesting but I'm looking for more things to do with it! Anything generative, creative etc. Make use of the spare GPUs I have hanging around perhaps... (e.g. wondering if there are some more non-deepfakery uses for something like faceswap) Pi 4 was a big enough jump that I wouldn't be surprised if we see them capable of being more viable for more than just hosting files and such.

shadzz

Hey, I do software for work, radarr sonarr poetainer plex Jellyfin are most used, but sometimes I spawn something at home if there isnt something in the office, but I mainly do homeassistant, zigbee2mqtt and few others, I basically have a docker compose for home and another for media, I actually would prefer two servers, the home stuff could use a raspberry pi 5 in the future if they get powerful enough.

chischis

Would be interested to know what else you use other than Plex? I'm diving into this stuff at the moment. Openmediavault + Jellyfin is covering a LOT of what I need, but there seems to be a ton of other good stuff to get into for a little homelab setup. Organizr looks great...

robjewitt

It’s Ssd in the MacBook and older magnetic drive in the iMac. The former is only two CPUs while iMac has 4. One of my diagnostic tools show that the RAM is constantly at 75-80% usage even with nothing running but the OS, which leads me to believe that there’s a fault there in one of the 4gb sticks

Smithers37

Are you running with a ssd? I’ve found this makes the biggest difference. My 4gb MAC mini with ssd feels smoother than the iMac I have at work which has 32gb and a i7 but with a hard drive.

skinrush

Seems a bonkers price to me. I must be out of touch, but the last time I considered a Mac mini, they were about £450 for decent ish spec.

robjewitt

It would be fine for Photoshop cs6 as that’s what I still run. Tried the Adobe cloud tools and it was a tad slower. If wanted to edit video then I’d go for more, but it should be okay

robjewitt

Might be my older machines getting bottlenecks elsewhere. My iMac really hangs with 8gb (but I suspect I have a RAM fault there) and my MacBook Air can even beachball using Safari with 3 tabs and an FTP client running. I’d always recommend 8gb+ for anything heavier than an Office suite and browsing

Thanks @EDEN188 and @Uncommon.Sense I hadn't realised the AMD chip.was also a GPU...it looks very promising :D I had previously used shuttles quite a bit for sff rigs but they seem to have ruined a quite positive brand. Happy Christmas to me ! (y)

EDEN188

Depends what you mean by "reasonable games", as this review suggest a Ryzen 3400G (https://www.windowscentral.com/amd-ryzen-5-3400g-review) does a pretty decent job with most games. If that is sufficient, then get 1 of these box and plonk this CPU in and it will do the job for your media server (assuming Plex server? it will support hardware transcoding) and gaming. If you want something beefier and got a deep enough pocket, you can try Uncommon.Sense's suggestion and get a NUC (with thunderbolt) to connect to an external GPU (needs an eGPU enclosure), adds quite a cost. Another alternative is the AsRock's Deskmini GTX (Z390), you can add GTX 1000 series GPU, but it needs to be in MXM format (https://www.asrock.com/nettop/Intel/DeskMini%20GTX%20(Z390)/index.asp)

Uncommon.Sense

As I suggested earlier, some folks get an Intel based NUC and use an external GPU. What dimensions are you looking for?

Interesting offer

CampGareth

If you're using it 24/7 there are environmental and power concerns for sure. OP isn't though, they're using it as a desktop in which case we're talking about maybe 10W vs 50W for 4 hours a day. 0.16kwh difference per day every day is about 58kwh a year or £8.76 at 15p/kwh. I hear you on 24/7 usage completely and am looking at replacing my underutilised x86 desktops-repurposed-as-servers with a stack of ARM boards. If I could make a 40W saving that's £50 a year, though it might be more difficult than I thought since the two of them idling with 6 drives in total spun up make for about 80W of consumption, I reckon 60W of that is the drives.

jnm21

I would ask you about the power consumption, but I'd guess you won't know (I can't even see the CPU model stated). Great headline price.

jnm21

Was about to like that post, then you got flippant about £10/year. Not to mention environmental harm. I've had my mini PC for years & often leave it on while away (to process recordings so that I can pick them up), so power consumption is a concern. 10W more 24/7 is approx. the cost of this unit over 12 years if my mental arithmetic holds. Heck an old P4 could cost as much in extra power as two of these over time!

My mate borrowed this off me that I'd upgraded to a 2TB SSHD (SSD would be faster but I was using it for media and photo storage etc). He's been using it with two decent displays and doing logic X work on it. Says has been a massive improvement from his MacBook Pro 2011. It's all use case and cost/power are just some factors. For me the 4K output was very useful.

EvilA

Same and I think this is a good comment. When you look at the multicore scores on Geekbench, the i7 model is a superb performer. I only just bought another i7 quad for £350 on eBay (16GB RAM) for use with legacy software. £200 is a great price if you can get it. Pending your purposes, this deal is actually a good price for what it is.

From what I can tell, the Mi Box S (released late last year) is still on Android 8.1, which isn't ideal. The last update was in March/April.

amour3k

*Android box. Android boxes never get long-term updates, regardless of manufacturer." I couldn't agree with you more there, lol. But could the same be said of Xiaomi Android/MUI boxes though?, or ... (genuine question by the way), thanx. As I know the Xiaomi phone's + tablet's are definitely on point, when it comes down to 'stuffs' like that, etc, etc. :-)

AH18UK

This is a Windows 10 PC, not an Android box. Android boxes never get long-term updates, regardless of manufacturer. Windows 10, on the other hand, will be updated indefinitely, as it is the 'last' version of Windows. The reason I don't use Windows 10 on my Beelink much is because it receives updates too often for my liking, forcing me to restart the PC when I need to use it. That's why I installed Linux on it, to avoid that problem.

simonspeakeasy

The last Beelink android box I bought never received updates which is enough to put me off the brand.

I've got the X45. it came with a 128GB SSD. I added a 1TB drive to the 2.5" 'bay'. I'm extremely happy with it. I shrank the Windows partition and installed Linux Mint. I don't boot into Windows much because there seems to be a big new update to install every other week. Great little machine.

I had one and upgraded the drive to an ssd. You can get to the drive but some disassembly is required. It’s just a 2.5 inch drive. The ram sadly is not upgradable... These work really well if you want to host a Plex server and don’t want to have a windows machine in the house. For most users what this does as a desktop is more than enough. Even editing some basic video in iMovie. Or web development. Wouldn’t recommend it for video or serious photo editing but it’s not a pro machine so pros won’t even look at it

Because Apple are of course unknown for deliberately kippering their devices in order to nudge people to buy new devices. Apple always have your best interests at heart. Trust Apple. Oh yes.

Best thing to do is watch one of the many disamantle videos a number of times prior and then literally follow and pause it when you come to do it. As long as you take your time and care you'd be fine. Not sure exactly which one I watched but this video below covers it off well. I literally did fetch the whole lot out to do it as the drive I replaced was right at the bottom (technically the top but you operate on it upside down of course!):

I need to do the ssd upgrade but am scared!
