So I have recently switched my Late 2012 Mac Mini to a VMware ESXi server. My primary machine is a 2015 MBP. The mini was essentially my iTunes server (I can't use plex or anything like that as I have a lot of purchased content). It was also used for ripping, encoding and tagging new content. As a result of this change I am in need of a new machine that can perform these duties and I would prefer to make it a Mac. I have looked around at used Minis and if I was to get one of them I would get one closer to what the Mini I have now is and the pricing comes out closer to the current mid or high end machine. I am not really concerned about how long the encoding takes as the content is viewed via my Apple TV and Home Sharing. My basic question is this-is there any reason not to get the base Mac Mini? I am not concerned about the speed of how long things take since it will be done in an isolated machine that be used for much else. A NAS solution won't really work because no NAS works with Home Sharing (at least none that I have seen).
