The Mac Mini might get updated
It took over three years to get updated. If all it upgrades is the CPU, it’s pointless. But if they upgrade more, maybe I’ll buy it. That’s the easiest way to get macOS. Running it in a virtual machine doesn’t work. Not unless you passthrough a video card. Laptop can’t do that.
I need one device for each OS, except WIndows, Windows can live in a VM, where it belongs.
Then I can turn my desktop off. Or make Windows the primary OS. Then games should work better.
