Mac mini (Late 2014)

It's mini in a massive way.

Mac mini received an update in late 2014 after 2 years of the previous model, this saw the server edition being discontinued but an introduction of a budget model which was more affordable at a reasonable £399. With greatly increased performance of the graphics compared to the 2012 model and much more efficient CPUs this was ideal for a lot of home users, however the eviction of the user removable RAM was a little disappointing.
