update on the new mac mini

like I expected the mac mini is fast. took it about a month to be shipped - apparently due to a shortage in fusion drives reportedly put into iMacs on priority but since I set it up on my desk last Saturday it has been quick like Han Solo.

the only thing missing at the moment is Thunderbolt as I lost the port to my secondary display. any solution to use both, two displays as well as the Thunderbolt port, would be helpful.

the specs are pretty much bottom right - everything maxed out - I didn't even stop at apple care. this machine shall help me with my personal projects for the next two to three years. what amazes me most is how this tiny thing is running circles around its older brother, my Mac pro eight core 2.8 XEON system. about the same amount of ram, about the same processor but much newer and only four cores - a smaller graphics chip … still the machine is faster and feels much more responsive.

… and it is quiet.
