I have a souped up late 2012 i7 Mac Mini with extra ram and an SSD running Yosemite. Did a lot of searching on Google on what would and would not work with it and there's seems to be a lot of misconceptions so I thought I'd put my experience here to save a lot of time if you're looking for the same info and setup. Note - if you upgrade to an SSD this must be sited in the original slot not the second one to be able to install the OS onto it. I've teamed it with the LG 34UM95-P 3440X1440 UltraWide monitor via thunderbolt with no problems. Final cut pro works extremely well and all of this extra screen real estate makes it a joy to work with. There's a lot you can do with this little machine and unless you need to, why spend more on something more powerful unless you really, really need it?
