Something else I discovered about the 2018 Mac Mini that has to be a good thing. I was having some malware issues with a computer at work, so I bought CleanMyMac to take care of it, and see if I like it. One of it's features is a temperature monitor. The 2011 and 2012 Minis run at idle at 135-145 degrees, which surprised me. My 2018 i7 runs at idle at 100-105. That has to be good for the computer in the long run. It's also quieter, since the fan is bigger and runs slower. 4400 RPM maximum vs 5500. The other ones frequently spin up quite a bit, even just watching an online video. This one barely makes a sound, even when using HandBrake.
