i am fixing to buy a new mini either the i5 or i7? which would you choose.. would like to get the mini with i5 and then just go from 4gb mem to 16gb..

would this be ok vs going witht the i7 or should i go i7 and then do mem updgrade on that ..

i have a dell xps 435 now with i7 and 12 gb mem with 1tb drive.. but i hate its size.. its always in the way ..

please recommend what memory updgrade and a link to the memory as it confuses the hell out of me when shopping for it ..

I would get the i 5 because it is a little cheaper and then upgrade your memory to what you want.Look for Crucial it is a good memory and i never had any problem with it in my mm 2011 model.

If price is not an issue, you'll want the i7. As previously said, third party memory is cheaper and is really easy to install.
