Hi,

MAC MINI mid level ($799) with regular HD?

Thanks =)

The Fusion Drive is like SSD that you don't have to worry about. I'd get that.

Depends on what you are using the machine for. Personally, I see no reason to get the base model. It's not much of an improvement over the 2011 model. Get the mid-level model and add an SSD later or upgrade to the fusion drive, you won't regret it.

Definately go with the Mid level if you can.
