Refurbished 2014 Mac Minis
Wednesday, January 7, 2015
Posted by: Staff

Apple recently began offering refurbished models of the 2014 Mac mini. This includes the entry-level 1.4GHz Mac mini for $419, the mid-level 2.6GHz Mac mini for $589, and the high-end 2.8GHz Mac mini for $849. It should also be noted that all models are covered by Apple's One-Year Limited Warranty and include free shipping. You should probably should hurry if you're interested though. They always sell out pretty darn fast.

It's all going to be soldered on in the future. Mac Pro will be the only Mac you can upgrade.

So I guess you better know what you want, when you purchase a MAC.

Why do you think they only use soldered on ram now? Does it same them on fixing people's PC's when they screw it up?

I had one mac mini about 5 years ago that I almost caused a fire for using bad memory. So I guess they are protecting people like me.

It's more than likely a cost savings to Apple. And one that's been sort of passed along to the end user with less expensive price points. It also allows them to make the more profit on upgrades. Cuts the memory makers out of the picture.


As far as knowing what you need, spot on. I would just suggest going with 8GB or more. Gives you more headroom and future proofing. Even more so if you like having more than just a couple tabs or apps open.
