Hello all, I'm new here and new (soon to be hopefully) to the mac world. I've used windows mainly and have a 3 years old laptop and its getting slower, even with more ram. I was looking at new PCs and thought I might try a mac. I would probably use it for a bit of photography, I've read about aperture? That's the main useage other than the browsing and stuff. So anyway I was looking up the Mac mini base model and was after some answers please . I've read about upgrading the ram, but would it be better with 8GB or 16GB? I would want to try and add a SSD (maybe two ) is this process as hard as some people make out? It seems pretty mixed about difficulty level. I've looked at the kits to upgrade to two HD's, The OWC seems the best value,as I'm in the UK does anyone know of any UK packages? Would the base model Mac mini cope with that? Thanks guys, I've looked about and you all seem like a helpful bunch! Look forward to reading the replies!
