    Depending on if you have a Display already or not I'd go with number one or number 3...

    Producing audio then I would go for the Mac Mini. Audio is dependent on Ram and Cpu. Max out your ram and get a top of the line cpu with Fusion drive.

    The main problem is i need at least 2 tb for my plugins and i in the future more of that. So the mini is a good option but than i need a external Hard Driver and Storage with Thunderbolt is way too expensive. :(

    There is NO audio plugin that takes up 2tb, heck none that takes up even half of that. Now if it's space you need which you should be doing anyways then you are SUPPOSED to connect and work with an external drive.

    Buy a 2tb usb3 hard drive that is cheap and your problems that you think you have do not exist. when that fills up or is close then you buy another. Always separate your audio/video/etc from your main hard drive.
