Winner?

CPU:

CPU-Monkey Results for Single-Core Greekbench 5, 64-bit: Apple M1 Chip Winner!
CPU-Monkey Results for Multi-Core Greekbench 5, 64-bit: Intel i7–12700T Winner!
Nano Review Results: Winner: Intel i7–12700T!
Winner: Dell Optiplex 7000! But, what do you think?

Memory:

In my humble opinion, Mac Mini wins because it has unified Memory and that is usually faster than the DDR4 of the Dell Optiplex 7000. But what do you think?
Winner: Apple Mac Mini with Unified Memory!

Storage:

Dell sadly only provides 512 GB SSD. That is not even close to the Apple whopping 2 TB SSD drive! But, what do you think? Please, leave comments below if you would like.
Winner: Apple Mac Mini 2 TB SSD option!

Ports:

Apple Mac Mini has a total of 7 Ports! Dell has a total of 10 ports!!! But, what do you think? Please, leave comments below if you would like.
Winner: Dell Optiplex 7000 with more ports!

Keyboard & Mouse:

This one for me is the Apple Magic keyboard and mouse. In my humble opinion, Apple has way better build quality when it comes to keyboard and mouse than Dell. But, what do you think? Please, leave comments below if you would like.
Winner: Apple Magic Keyboard and Mouse.

Price:

Here I am going to make a personal decision! Is it worth paying $580 more than the Dell Optiplex 7000 and getting the Apple Mac Mini?

If you asked me. I would be in a bind. Both are good computers. If I wanted more computing power Dell Optiplex 7000! The only good thing about the Mac Mini is you get a built-in 2 TB SSD and maybe the 10GB Ethernet Ports and also the Thunderbolt Ports but all in all that isn’t worth more than $580 for me. Surprisingly for this one, I will go with the Dell Optiplex 7000 with better CPU power!

But, what do you think? Please, leave comments below if you would like.

Conclusion!

The ultimate choice is up to you! What will you choose my friend?

Look forward to more of the series coming in the short future!
