Hi, I've be a Windows PC guy for 28 years now so I'm a little nervous jumping into the Mac world. I've been using iPhone's & iPad's almost since their release and love apple products, I now would like to have everything (computer/iphone/ipad) work together seamlessly. My family owns iphones & ipads, however I've never even touched or used a Mac computer. My wife will also be purchasing a Mac Air soon to replace her laptop PC. I do consider myself somewhat of an expert PC user and have a specific way I have things setup and I'd like to try and keep some of that moving into the Mac world. I use utorrent to download some of my shows and I use Plex server and Plex Home Theater to view my TV shows & Movies, I also use JRiver to play my music. I have checked and all those programs are available to Mac users. I was considering purchasing the mid range Mac Mini 2014 and an Airport Extreme or Airport Time Capsule. So this is where my dilemma is, I've done lots of digging around this site and the internet and have had many questions answered except I cannot decide on these questions. Mac Mini 2.6Ghz: Should I go with the 256GB PCIe or the 1 TB option. I currently own several SSD drives, all 4 of my PC's I have now all have SSD drives so I could never bare to go back with a mechanical HDD for my OS. I know I can replace the 1 TB with a SSD but then I void warranty and I'm fuzzy on whether its straight plug and play for the SSD I think it needs to connected via some other way internally. Also I've read the PCIe SSD is faster than SATA SSD, how much fast I don't know and would I notice a significant difference in speed between PCEi vs SATA? Airport Extreme or Time Capsule: I understand the function of Time Capsule however I currently am in complete control of what gets backed up and it's all done manually which sometimes can be a pain in the rear. I like the automation of Time Capsule but can I use the remaining space (2Tb) to store my tv shows and movies to stream from the Time Capsule using Plex Server on my Mac Mini? I could probably condense my data to under 2 TB as the 3 TB Tim Capsule is out of my price range. It's very important to me that I'm able to use Plex server on my mac mini so that all other devices in house can access my content. Would it be cheaper to use the Extreme with an external HDD, I currently own 3x 3.5 HHD. I also have a 4 bay enclosure USB 3.0 I don't know if I could connect that to the Airport Extreme and it read ALL 4 drives? I really don't need all that space as I've condensed things down. I do know I will need at least 2-3 TB of storage to hold my tv shows, music, and movies. Will a Ext HDD connected via Airport Extreme transfer as fast as a Time Capsule with its internal HDD? I forgot to mention if the Mac mini is only a 256gb PCIe then wouldn't I only require 256GB of the 2 TB for back and use the remaining space for tv shows and movies? Thanks in advance for any help!
