Hello forum. So I'm going to be attending college soon for a digital media course and one of the components of the course is sound design. The college is an all-mac environment and they'll be using Logic Pro and Garage band. I had a MacBook back in 2010 and I found Garage Band to be quite good for doing sound design, and honestly I have never found a sound program as easy to use and functional for PC. Anyways, I'm pretty much a 90% PC kinda guy. Its nothing really against Mac I just do a lot of stuff that requires hardware more powerful than what Apple has to offer. But I do want to get a Mac of my own for doing my own sound design work, but I don't want to spend 1500$+ on an iMac. Would the baseline Mac Mini with the 1.4Ghz i5 and 8GB of RAM be sufficient to run Logic Pro X? Should I go up a tier and get the 2.6Ghz? Will 8GB of RAM last a while, or should I get 16GB? Does the Mini have user replaceable SODIMMs or did they move to soldered chips? Thanks a lot for the help!
