Wow. I'm always amazed when I see Mac Mini Prices. I've got a 2012 i5 that I use as a HTPC which I've dropped an SSD + 2nd drive kit (for a mechanical drive) as well as a 2010 Mini with a 2.4GHz C2D, Superdrive and HDMI (the last one with an optical drive) that's HTPC to the kids TV. Occasionally I think about selling one or both but it seems like a lot of effort to then replicate the functionality I have setup just to make a couple of $$
As for new Purchases... I just took delivery of a DJI Phantom 3 Standard. I've only had the chance for one flight so far but it's pretty amazing. I uploaded the first flight video, RAW and unedited which means no sound. Very impressed with it so far.
