Want to get some opinions from the illuminati here at MR. I've got a 2011 base mini that I added 8gb ram used primarily as a media server, and a late 2008 MBP. The mini has the stock 500gb hdd, and it's about 90% full. About 370gb contains music, videos and photos. Best guess is that this will grow by about 25gb per year. Over the weekend Amazon has had the Crucial M500 960gb ssd for $439. So one option I'm considering is swapping the mini hard drive with the ssd and swapping the mini had drive into the MBP (the MBP hd is 320gb). I plan to use carbon copy cloner to replicate the drives. Another option is to buy a refurb 2012 Mac mini server to get 2 1tb drives, which I expect would take care of storage needs for a very long time. I would wait for a 2013/14 mini refresh since the refurb server will drop to $759 if patterns hold true. I would max the memory on my own and sell the old mini if I go this route, so the cost of both options is probably similar, net. With option 1 I gain speed, and with 2 I gain space. Any processor or graphics improvement don't seem consequential for my needs, so what do y'all think? Any other interesting options? Thanks for your opinions!
