OK. My opinion which, like all other opinions, is worth what you paid for it:

I had a look at the current Mac Mini specs. Although more of a problem on PCs with Windows pushing GPU driver updates for Intel graphics, I personally would shy away from the Mac Mini because of its integrated GPU. You could get an eGPU although I've seen some folks having problems with them related to SketchUp. If I was in the market for a new computer to use with SketchUp, I would likely give the Mac Minis a miss.

For SketchUp, if I had to choose an Apple product, Mac Book Pro without question.

I was hoping the new iPad Pro would have the scanner to really scan things and then use that into SU
I have the skanect Mark 2 scanner , and I’m not very impressed with it
Anyone else using a scanner?

If wishes were fishes....

Considering the iPad Pro use iOS and SketchUp doesn't support that, it is probably a non-starter.
