Would this make a good family computer? For web browsing, minor photo editing, etc? Or would a different Mac be better?

I know the spec are less than what you get with 2020 model, but it's $300 cheaper.

I think so. I'm running a 2012 mini at home maxed out and it serves my family well and home work computer.

You can replace the RAM yourself, which makes this option much more economical. For storage, I agree that 256GB is not enough but you can use a Thunderbolt 3 carrier, external storage or NAS to bring it up to par.

No issue with mine, which I upgraded to 32GB of RAM for less than $150.

Also, it's now out of stock

Fair enough but the RAM upgrade procedure involves taking the entire machine apart, plus I need 1 TB internal storage, minimum. There's a refurbished a 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD 2014 model for around the same price I have my eye on.

Hey Mac Mini users, I have a 2014 MBP (2.8Ghz i716gb 512gb Nvidia 750) currently and I'm thinking about swapping to a 2018 i5 (also would consider i7) w/ 16GB. On paper this seems like a pretty decent upgrade. On GeekBench it's something like 17% better singlecore for (i5) and 35% better multi core scores.

DDR3 vs DDR4
4 Core vs 6
New harddrive
GPU on board latest chips about on par to the 750GT (which is mostly useless tbh).

Think this is a worth while upgrade? I do web dev on the MBP. I use it like a desktop as-is. Closed with 2 external monitors. So I'm thinking the Mac Mini might be a decent swap.

(My MBP hates one of my monitors and I have to use the apple dongle and it's super annoying...screen cuts out sometimes multiple times per day)

Would love some feedback, cheers
