Well, my Macbook 2011 with SandyBridge 4 core I7 just hit the roof in a few project. I'm considering the new Mac mini. But how big is the difference between i5 an i7? I guess a 8:th gen i5 with 6 cores is still way better for Logic than a 4 core Sandy Bridge i7 right?


The i7 should have more threads, two for every core.

Thank you uncleozzy, redgreenblue & gdoubleyou. I also read a thread in Gearslutz claiming the i7 really has huge advantages when it comes to DAWs. I'll go for the i7. And then I add an OWC Express 4M2 to handle my large SoundLibraries because Apples pricing on increasing storage to 2 TB is just crazy!

And here I was ready to splurge on a new iMac... wow those are getting long in the tooth. What to do now. Wait for a new 27" iMac or consider the Mac mini with a 34" wide screen?? :D

If you really want an iMac I would wait, it has been over 500 days since the last refresh and there is bound to be something soon. (I would guess January) I'm looking forward to the benchmarks of the Mini, that is what I'm likely to get for my next machine.

With the performance of the A12X, it seems like we're closing in on ARM on the desktop/laptop in the next iteration, no? I bought one of the first Intel Macs ... will I also inadvertently buy one of the last? (Seems like maybe.)
