Okay I've got my Mac mini 2012 i7 2.3Ghz version. Here is what is going on 1) I'm upgrading RAM to 16GB. 2) I'm going for a data doubler and got kit from OWC to install SSD into my mini. I've got Samsung 840 series 500GB drive from Newegg for $299 Now my question is anyone here installed Win 8 on their mac mini ? I need to install windows because I do software development for my main job and my company is moving to Visual Studio 2012 so I will need to install it to learn VS 2012 before we dive into it. My main use of machine is Digital Photography edit using CS6 + LR4 and occassional use of iMovie to burn slideshows. I've VMware Fusion 4 from my previous MBP. Is VMWare Fusion 4 capable of working with ML as well as Win 8 or I'll need to buy Vmware Fusion 5 or Parallels Desktop 8 ?
