Re: Considering new Mac Mini

Thanks, I have been eyeing the OWC Mini stack with its USB-C connector. As a serious amateur camera guy and sports photographer I average 50,000+ photos a year. I keep my Photos library on an external drive and because drives are so cheap I just buy a new one every year and keep the old drive as an ...

Re: Considering new Mac Mini

The new Mini has a couple of USB ports and 4 USB-C ports. Do you have any suggestions on a USB or USB-C hub?

I'm considering the new Mac Mini to replace my aging iMac. RAM appears to be upgradeable after purchase which is a huge selling point to me. I see that Costco offers the Dell 27" Ultrasharp Infinity Edge monitor for $299, appears a perfect fit for Apple's newly announced Mini. https://media.wired.co...

Re: Saving files from mac to PC formatted ext drive

If you only have a few files the simplest way is to email the files or if you have a lot of files and don't want to reformat as Rick suggests you can create a free Dropbox account at www.dropbox.com
