Reasons For

6 Reasons For
47% faster processor frequency Edit
Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is 2.6GHz processor clock speed. That's 1.2GHz faster than the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (1.4GHz). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

Faster processor boost frequency Edit
Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is 3.1GHz maximum turbo frequency. That's 0.4GHz faster than the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (2.7GHz). Read more

The turbo boost is an automatic, managed accelleration of the processor when one of the cores is overloaded.

Bigger internal memory Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is an 8GB memory PC. That's 4GB bigger than the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (4GB). Read more

A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.

A higher internal memory will allow the computer to run more quickly.

A lot bigger total storage capacity Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 has a total storage capacity of 1TB, however the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is only a 500GB total storage capacity PC (500GB smaller). Read more

The total internal storage capacity is the space available for the computer to store documents, media and applications.

A bigger internal storage capacity means that you can store more applications, documents and media on the computer.

A lot bigger hard drive capacity Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 has a hard drive capacity of 1TB, however the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is only a 500GB hard drive capacity PC (500GB smaller). Read more

The maximum storage capacity of the hard disk, usually measured in bytes e.g. GB.

A larger storage capacity will allow you to store more applications and documents on the computer.

Moderately faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is a 1,100MHz on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency PC, whereas the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is only a 1,000MHz on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency PC (100MHz slower).
