How is the base M2 Mac Mini for programming (but with 16 gigs of RAM) ?

Primary use case will be Flutter, C and C++, Python, and the occasional assembly.

If you don't have specific software/OS requirements then it's fine. You didn't specified much 😉

Make sure to add some RGB. It will turbo boost your computing efficiency. 

Sudo make me a sandwich

How would it compare with a custom PC of the same price?

Compare in which category?

 

I'm using Linux for development work and home. For work I have a bigger Kubernetes cluster which requires ~32+GB of RAM which would be a cost factor for Apple devices. Then 1TB SSD, Xubuntu, and the job gets done. Linux distros can have their oddities when it comes to stability, and UX, but macOS can also be annoying 😉 I could move my stack to macOS but not on Windows (only to WSL) and I don't really want to go with the Windows part.

 

For development, the PC cost would be much lower than macOS, but also it would not be a full package out of the box.

A custom PC would not be as portable or efficient and you would have to design and build it yourself. But if done right you would end up with somewhere around twice the processing power and RAM.
