Hey folks; I thought i had asked this question a while back but can't find a trace of it,,,,maybe i just thought it. Anyway as the subject line says i have a 2005 pre-intel 1.25GHz mini that's been great all these yrs but its time to upgrade. I've read a few posts on getting a 2012 model and have watched on ebay off and on for a while. I'm not a heavy user. I the normal internet stuff.I may be downloading movies to play to an alternative screen but that's about as exciting as it gets,,,NO GAMING at all. So the question is should i be trying to find a 2012 model or will the 2014 fit my needs . I'd be getting the 1.4GHz mini. Thanks.

One other question. i have a Newertech? backup drive,is it easy enough to back up my bookmarks etc and drag and drop , or something, onto the new drive when i get it?. Thanks

Tthe 2014 should fit needs, however in case you discover new interests the 2012 would be better.
I would use Migration Assistant to transfer file from one computer to another but I do not know if it would work with two OS which are really different I am certain somebody will tell you here.
