is this a good idea?

Recommended Posts

@Arika S beat me to the meme.

 

Roblox runs like ass on macOS no matter what. Poorly optimized.

 

I'll take your Mac Mini off your hands, I've been wanting a 2014 😛

Do you want OP to have a bad gaming experience? You obviously need a NASA computer for roblox.

Unsure of what the question is... Are you looking to upgrade it to make games more playable? 'Cause you're pretty limited.

 

More RAM is nice, I'm gonna go ahead and assume you don't have a load so adding more may help, plus DDR3 is fairly affordable now.

 

Beyond that? I've no idea if you can fit a better CPU, although I highly doubt it. The 2014 is too old to have Thunderbolt 3, you're stuck with TB2 so an eGPU is also out of the question.

 

I've not played Roblox but I understand it's very poorly optimised, I'd suggest another game (I can even run Minecraft on an awful Atom powered laptop) but obviously that would be a dick move.

 

TL;DR - Might just be time to upgrade the whole rig tbh.

Apple products are rarely a good idea.

 

Although I'd prefer to say they are NEVER a good idea.


Computer's don't make errors. What they do, they do on purpose. By now your name and particulars have been fed into every laptop, desktop, mainframe and supermarket scanner that collectively make up the global information conspiracy, otherwise known as The Beast.

 

You just be careful. Computers have already beaten the Communists at chess. Next thing you know, they'll be beating humans.

They're perfectly good for their intended purposes/users, gaming is not the intended use.

 

They're a mix of luxury and professional items, neither of which calls for value for money or really gaming performance.

Only if you're looking for a monitor stand.

 

*EDIT: Or VESA mount.

Considering the price to performance ratio you get when you factor in things like longevity and service from the OEM? They aren't. Not by a long shot.

 

Do your research. Apple is a shit company with shit designs, shit customer service, and even worse policies that are blatantly anti-consumer and just waiting for class action lawsuits.
