OK I bit

Ordered a new mini—the 3.6Ghz, 128 GB basic but with 16 Gigs of RAM. I'm almost all out of the graphic design/web design biz these days but I love the speed of a lot of RAM.
I'll let you know how I like it when it gets here.
I have a 2.4Ghz, 8 Gig ram 2010 mini with a non-functioning optical drive (you could put in an SSD) which I would sell probably too cheap to interested parties once I get the new one. Just sayin'.

Not sure if I need a new mini, but hey, a new mini. I blame the brandy.

Sweet.

The extra ram is nice, but doesnt actually "speed up" things. However, the 3000 MB/s flash drive will.

It would be a toss up between the ram vs drive for me... Id prob go with the drive, since the ram is semi DIY.

I read the other day that the bottom of the line model (the one you got) roughy matches the 2015 27" iMac 3.3GHz i5 in both single and multi-core processing. With the faster RAM and the fast SSD, I'm sure you'll be a happy camper.

Nice purchase but is 128GB gonna be enough? Or are you planning on storing most of your stuff on an external drive?

I bought the new base config mini (128/8/i3) to replace my 2009 mac mini and spent yesterday setting up. I had a 128 SSD in the old mini, and so do plan to keep all my user files on an external drive.

I'm thinking real hard about a new mini, same configuration– basic.

I'm passing on a 'Phone for now, but it looks like an iPad, a Watch, and possibly a mini.
