    Thinking about purchasing a Mac Mini, as I am doing a lot of work in after effects, photoshop, and FCPX. Wondering if I should upgrade to 2.7GHz. Is there a noticeable difference between them. I am defiantly upgrading to 8GB of RAM, just not sure about the GHz.

    GHZ is the same almost, get the cheap one. Do upgrade to 8GB and put a 480GB SSD in it!

    I could do a 3rd party RAM upgrade which would probably be cheaper, as apple charges $100 for it, and with the mac mini you can only upgrade to a 256 SSD, and I need around 500GB.

    You might as well go for the upgraded processor.

    The big difference here is not the .2GHz extra but rather the i7 core which had hyperthreading, this will make a big difference when using those tools.
    Definitely worth the extra, but save urself the money and upgrade the ram yourself
