Hi mini experts, The lack of a Macpro update, and overall cost has me looking at scaling back my aspirations a bit on my next apple purchase. I am a photo prosumer, with a large photo library (80k++ photos, 1TB++). I will use aperture primarily to manage these photos. Would the following system be enough for these needs: Mac mini i7, 8gb ram, 120SSD + 500gb LaCie 2big 4TB thunderbolt for the library Various backup media HDMI to my TV I am concerned about only 2 cores, should I be? Is the 120 enough for all the apps plus osx? Anyone have this system running video editing? That is not the primary activity, just for what the kids take, and for me to produce with iMovie. Thanks for the feedback.
