I currently use a Mac mini (2014 Base) with 1.4ghz i5, 4 GB Ram & 500GB SSD. I also have a 2012 MacBook Air that I use on the go with 4GB Ram & a 128GB SSD. Next year I'm looking to upgrade to a new Mac as I want something that's going to last for a while. Now I'm gonna start saving money and am looking at how much to put away and so on. I run an Online WebSeries TV Network. So I do photo editing, video editing and localhost work. Now before I get into what I'm looking at, let me say this. I very rarely get a beach ball, my system runs great with what I do. Everyone who says 4GB Ram is not enough, I have zero issues with FCP or Photoshop. Now what I'm looking at is 8GB Ram vs 16GB Ram and 256 or 512 SSD. I'm also unsure if I want to go MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Pro w/TB. I think the MacBook Air is out because that's not really future proof. I will be hooking it to a 27 inch monitor. I have also considered a maxed out Mac mini but again don't think it's future proof. I would like to find a machine that will last 7-8 years for me with the amount of money the machines are. A laptop would work because I can use it as a desktop & laptop on the go. Just want to get some opinions and advice so I know what I should be looking for and how much I'm gonna have to save to spend. Thanks for everyones time.
