Truthfully I’d just stick with an iPad. Some business programs we use for me and my wife’s construction does not work on any Apple device. So consider what you need a new computer for exactly before getting a Mac.
I don’t use my Mac mini to to often but another thing cool is it’s Apple. So right now I’m replying from my phone at lunch. I can go home to my Mac mini and or iPad and pretty much get right back to where I was at lunch. Any pictures I take are automatically on both now at the house. Any webpage I’m on my phone is accessible when I get home to my Mac or iPad.
