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.

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.

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
