Macintosh / Re: Apple releases new Mac mini

Not sure if the 2015 is that much different than the late 2013 21.5, but I was able to replace the drive in about 20 minutes. The hardest part was removing the left over adhesive strips before putting the new ones down. I used the OWC kit, and the drive had no special cables needed (my mid 2011 did need a special thermal sensor, but I think they dropped that nonsense when they went slim). It's stupid that Apple went with the adhesive instead of the magnets like on the older models. But it's actually pretty easy to get into.

Really considering going hackintosh for the eventual upgrades around here though. But, Intel's been dragging their heels and the newest processors actually aren't that much faster than what we currently have.

Yeah on these I don't want to pull that display either. Even the last two times I've had a certified Apple repair place have to pull that display they have damaged it and then had to replace it. Which is why I do not have an SSD in my current Mac at home.

If you get the hard drive kit from OWC for the iMacs you can change the size of the drive. Not sure if that applies to other things like the Macbook Pro or iMac Pro.

That is not something I would never want to do. Removing that screen seems like no fun at all and one mess up and there goes the computer as it would probably be cheaper to buy new then to have Apple fix it... if they even would fix it.

I've ran into that issue a lot. I go and get the price of something and it takes management a week to decide "yeah go ahead and get it". Then I have to go back and tell them since it took a week to make up their mind the price is now $100 higher.

I have 2 DVI monitors I'll sell cheap. One is a 21" Dell and the other is a 22" LG. I got the Dell at a swap meet for $2, and the LG I bought new about 8 years ago on Black Friday for $110. You can have both for $50 plus whatever it costs to pack and ship them to San Diego.
