Advice on new Mac

Mac mini - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
Hi everyone,

My 2011 Mac Mini just died (drive failed) and I have decided that rather try and fix it, I am going to get a new computer. I use it mainly was a server for my media (all saved on an external drive and use iTunes/Apple TV). I also use it for surfing the web but not much more.

I am torn as to what to get next. The "new" Mac Minis out now, although they would probably suit my needs fine) are rather outdated spec-wise. I feel like I am paying a huge premium just to get what I had before. I am also considering an iMac since they seem fairly powerful and future proof for the time being (my kids will be using computers soon so I figured I might as well get something they can learn on).

Anyone have any advise as to what I should get?

Ideally, I'd like to stay under $1,000 but if I go iMac I'd pay up for it. I have also considered getting something besides a Mac (ie Windows) instead if there was a compelling enough reason but everything in our house is Apple (Apple TVs, iPhone/iPads, Apple Watches, etc).

If anyone has been in a similar situation or knows of any solutions to consider, I'd be grateful if you'd share!

Thanks!

Sorry - will move this to "buying tips" forum! Didn't notice it was there!
