1. Not 2012, but 2011

I have a 2011 mini that I got refurbished from the Apple web site. I put in 8GB right away and have been very pleased with its performance. If you want a mini to go really fast, put in a solid state hard drive.

2. That's what I'm considering

I prefer electronic vs mechanical storage.

I'm debating whether to spring for the 2.6Ghz quad-core I7 with 256GB SSD now, or wait until one pops up as a refurb.

3. Well, I couldn't wait

2.6GHz with 256GB SSD and 16GB RAM. I like it.

Anyone know why accessory manufacturers are moving away from Bluetooth? Seems that the newest keyboards/mice are using USB transceivers.

I'd prefer not using up a USB port, if there's already an integrated capability. I don't care for the sharp edges of the Mighty Mouse, but there's not a lot of Bluetooth options out there.

6. Nope. My Mac Mini is a 2009 model.

I love it and would like to have a newer model, but I can't afford it at this time. But for now, that little critter just keeps on going.
