Hi all, I've decided to stop waiting for the new Mac Mini, and just go ahead and get one now. I might resell this one in the future if the Iris upgrade is compelling enough, so resale value would play into my decision of which option to go with. I'm trying to decide between a couple options and thought I would see what you all thought. I will be getting the 2.6 i7. I'll get 4GB RAM and upgrade to 16GB myself. What's really up in the air is what I do with the hard drive. I want to keep the AppleCare to be valid on everything but the hard drive, so I'm going to have any HD work done by an AASP. Here are the options I'm considering... please let me know which you would pick, and why, or if you would pick an option not listed here: 1) Buy a 2.6 i7, 4GB, 1TB HDD, and have an additional 750GB EVO 840 SSD added as a second internal drive by an Apple Authorized Service Provider (potentially rolling my own Fusion Drive) 2) Buy a 2.6 i7, 4GB, 1TB HDD, and have an additional 750GB EVO 840 SSD installed as the primary internal drive by an Apple Authorized Service Provider, and remove the stock 1TB HDD and put into a USB3/thunderbolt enclosure 3) Buy a 2.6 i7, 4GB, 1TB HDD, and use a 750GB EVO 840 SSD in an external thunderbolt enclosure 4) Buy a 2.6 i7, 4GB, 1TB Fusion Drive and call it a day I currently have a ~150GB iPhoto library, and about ~125GB iTunes library. I would use the machine as the main media server, backup iPhones, etc. I don't really do video editing, mostly just watching videos from the iPhoto library. I eventually might have this machine drive 2 Apple Thunderbolt Displays. Thanks for your help!
