I love my ipad, but apple is so dam overpriced, well not everything. This baby don't have the best graphics for gaming, but I got her for the music creation. At first GB (garage band) seemed to be enough, but logic pro X was my main intention and sometimes when everything comes together apple ain't so expensive; if you shop.
I can ram up my mac mini myself up to 12gb at present, seems to be more than enough.
Every time I plug something into my mac mini, it tells me, PC never did that. There has never been even from 4gb memory latenacy problems, what you play into the mini; eg - my electric guitar through my cakewalk usb audio interface UA-1G ( yeah this works just fine), is what you hear in your headphones.
I love my mac mini, I bought it new on sale, got a great price. BUT let me clearly say, I bought my mac mini for music creation and she does what I always wanted PC to do but never could.
I'm still running mavericks, again if she ain't broke why fix it.
The future is small things making great big things
This thing is decked out with a quad core i7, and 16GB of RAM. It has a 5400 RPM, 750GB System Drive, and a 7200 1TB storage drive. I'm running my own dual monitor setup with 2 Acer 21.5' monitors, and am attempting a dual boot system with Win 7, or 8.1 (whichever will cooperate better). Bummed I can't use my Sylenth1 with it though, at least not yet, but that's my only problem. Love this workhorse!!!
