Excerpt of article text...

Last time I mentioned I would be replacing my aging 2009 Mac Pro with something more modern and I'm sure you are all eagerly awaiting to find out what I decided.

Turns out the Mac mini worked best for me. I am now writing this on a 2018 Mac mini with 3.2Ghz i7, 1TB SSD, and 64GB(!) of RAM. The RAM is surely overkill, but I installed it myself (super-easy) which made the cost much, much lower. And it sure is nice to not worry about RAM when I have multiple versions of Xojo open, a couple VMs for Windows and Linux and even Android Studio for top-secret Android-related Xojo stuff.

Upcoming Conferences

The MonkeyBread Conference is fast approaching, taking place from October 24th to 25th in Cologne, Germany. Geoff Perlman (Founder and CEO) and Dana Brown (Director of Marketing) are both attending. Learn more here:
