The 2014 Mac Mini can’t take a RAM Upgrade so be sure to buy the Mac Mini with the Maximum RAM.
The short answer? None.
Much to the dismay of many the 2014 Mac Mini cannot accept any upgrades from the user. The only way to max out the RAM on the Mac Mini is to buy a Mac Mini with more ram at time of purchase. This is a shame, because now instead of being able to extend or improve the performance of your 2014 Mac Mini you’re out of luck and over time the amount of RAM you have in this model may affect how long you end up keeping the Mac Mini over time.
The Apple iPhone 4s is the better phone and is still priced at about $200 for a refurbished model
The Apple iPhone 4 and 4s models are pretty old now in 2014 but that doesn’t mean that they are two old for use or that they won’t make a good secondary phone or if you don’t need to have the fastest iPhone out there you can get some pretty good deals on older Apple iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S models.
Do you need iOS 8?
The big difference between the two phones, and the first I want to mention is support for iOS 8. If you’re on the fence between the two models is that the 4 taps out at iOS 7 but the 4s can run iOS 8. There have been a lot of improvements to iOS 8 from iOS 7 but if you’re a casual user of your iPhone the 4s still runs the latest OS and can be bought for under $200.00.
If you want to upgrade a 2014 Mac Mini, you’re out of luck. But older models can accept both hard drive and ram upgades and are a great way to add more life to your older Mac Mini
Updating a Mac Mini is a great way to get more life or faster speed or more storage out of your Mac Mini and here’s a few suggestions to enhance your computing experience when using the Apple Mac Mini:
2014 Mac Mini
With the 2014 Mac Mini, you’re pretty much screwed when it comes to upgrades – at least internally. If you want to upgrade the ram or storage space on a 2014 Mac Mini be sure to do it at the time you order your Mac Mini or you will be stuck with the configuration for the entire time you own the 2014 model.
You can upgrade the Mac Mini externally by adding an external SSD like the Samsung T1 External SSD which will allow you to add more storage via the Mac Mini’s USB port. These are currently available in 250GB, 500GB and 1TB sizes and are a cheap way to get more storage space on your Mac.
I think the 2014 Mac Mini is a pretty good deal for an Apple Computer despite the fact you can’t upgrade the ram or hard drive
I’ve been thinking a lot about the Apple Mac Mini and I think the 2014 models have been given a bum rap.
A google search will take you about 30 seconds to find more than one opinion piece about how the 2014 Mac Mini is not the deal it once was and that there’s no replaceable parts any more in the new Mac Mini and that the 2014 is one big disappointment from Apple.
Personally, I think that’s a good thing you can no longer open them up.
After musing about what apple notebook I would buy I got to thinking: We all know the soon to be released Apple MacBook is the lightest Apple computer ever but what about the other models? How much do they weigh? Does more SSD hard drive space make a computer heavier? What about RAM? Does that make a computer heavier? Let’s have a look:
I have been shopping for a new Mac recently and lately it’s come down to two choices:
MacBook Pro vs MacBook Air
Both are really designed for different purposes and different price points and I would like to compare both and see what one would really fit my needs. I mostly just work with text now and really don’t need the extra cost of the MacBook Pro but when shopping for a new computer I like to sit down and write about what might be the best choice for me.
