    Anyone running Civ6 on the 2017 entry level (i.e., not Retina Display) iMac? Is it okay?

    The new Mini, which I had been eagerly awaiting, has an unsupported video card quite similar to the one in that new-but-low-end iMac. I think the new Mini is quite pointless for consumers, since it has no internal hard drive, but all the reviews are breathless. I do not get it!

    Thanks @lanval, but I am not wealthy enough to go that route. The currently available eGPU cost far too much to justify playing a game. Plus, now I need to plug two boxes into a Mini just to get started? External hard drive are cheap enough, but they are so ugly. Apple has totally walked away from the consumer market (as far as their computers go).

    Anyone know if Civ6 on an iPad has the same deep game play as on OS X?
