Yeah, like all mac minis, it has overheating issues. Trying to do something hard on the system like decent development will have it fry it completely.

No, they haven't been updated in 2 years, and don't show signs they will be. Most likely dropped by apple.

This is bullshit, recent minis are more than capable of development, it's significantly less demanding than people think. An SSD on a modest processor will scream through any iOS development you can throw at it. I have multiple apps on the store developed using a comparable setup

is this sarcasm or bullshit i can't tell

of course it will, any ssd will (this is old news) iOS development is freaking expensive though. and apple is incredibly sloppy

OK guys I think I'll just use what I have now and work with Android, until my college has us work on IOS software in our new mac mini lab.

Thanks everyone!
