Apple updates the Mac mini

It looks like Apple has once again done what is best for Apple, and has left their customers with less value and choice than ever.

The October, 2014 Mac mini is an updated version of the previous mini (updated in October, 2012). It includes the latest generation Intel Haswell processors, the latest on-board Intel HD 5000 or Iris Graphics, Thunderbolt 2, and USB 3.0. The October, 2012 models included previous generation Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 and i7 CPUs, Intel HD Graphics 4000, Thuderbolt (1), USB 2.0 and FireWire. And, the 2014 Mac mini's start at $499.00 vs. $599.00 for the 2012's.

It sounds like a great deal - you get all of the latest technology rolled into a very small package - really nice updates to Thunderbolt 2 and much better graphics. But, you are being forced into the Apple non-repairable, throw-away model - the 2014 mini's memory isn't user upgradeable, making the $499.00 base model price very deceiving. 1. the base model comes with 4GB of memory that can't be upgraded, barely enough to boot a new computer, 2. it has a low power and very slow Core i5 processor (CPU Benchmark of 3651 vs. 3804 for the 2012 base model), and 3. it comes with a slow 500GB mechanical hard drive. And, if you aren't satisfied with it's performance in a year or so, you can throw it away, because it can't be upgraded.

On the high-end, the 2014 mini is even less of a bargain. A 2014 Dual-Core i7 (CPU Benchmark of 5068) model with 16GB of memory and a 1TB fusion drive clocks in at $1399.00 (the top-of-the line model with 1TB PCIe storage and AppleCare is $2298.00!). A 2012 Quad-Core i7 (CPU Benchmark of 8328) model with a 500GB SSD drive, a 1TB storage drive and 16GB of memory (with user installed upgrades) would cost around $1250.00. I'm sure that users would love to have Intel Iris Graphics and Thunderbolt 2. But, why force them to get the improvements by charging more money for a machine that is 40 percent slower in processing horsepower?

Finally, if you are looking at the 2014 Mac mini, include AppleCare in your purchase. Since the machines aren't upgradeable, if you need a new high-end motherboard, you will need to buy the model that corresponds to your mini - i.e., you'll need to buy a high-end one with a Core-i7 processor and 16GB of soldered memory. (Funny, adding that extra $99.00 AppleCare cost brings the base model price within $1.00 of the 2012 base model - which we felt didn't need AppleCare.)

Stop Using Microsoft Internet Explorer!

[5/1/14 update: Microsoft has released patches for fixing this vulnerability - per Adrienne Hall, General Manager, Trustworthy Computing, Microsoft, "We believe, and take a huge amount of pride that, among widely used browsers, IE is the safest in the world due to its secure development and ability to protect customers, even in the face of cyber criminals who want to break it. This means that when we saw the first reports about this vulnerability we said fix it, fix it fast, and fix it for all our customers. So we did. The update that does this goes live today at 10 a.m. PDT [5/1/14]." This fix is available for Microsoft XP users as well as for users of Microsoft's current operating systems, and can be downloaded by using the Automatic Updates functionality of the operating system.]

By now, you probably have heard the news of the latest vulnerability to strike Windows computers. If you are using the most popular browser, Internet Explorer (IE) you should switch to a current version of another browser, like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. And, no matter what browser you are using, you should update Adobe Flash to its latest version or disable it, since the vulnerability depends on Flash.

The latest flaw leaves users open to attack from hackers who can install malware on your system and hijack your computer. Microsoft reports that a patch will not be available until May 13.

If you are using Windows XP, the news is even worse. Microsoft will not release a patch for XP users since it stopped supporting XP earlier this month. As predicted, with no technical assistance and security updates, XP users will be more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. For more information about the end of XP and recommended system replacements, click here.
