I have a MacPro that I bought in Nov 2006, but it's time to reduce the footprint and weight. I'm also on Snow Leopard - I haven't seen a need to upgrade, but I guess a new machine should get off to a fresh start with the new OS. Though I could wait a bit for the new Pro, any new Mini would already outperform my current Mac. After reading up on things, I would like some feedback on what my selection might be, and a tip on the boot drive. My thoughts so far: - 2.6GHz quad-core i7 - 4GB base memory - upgrade memory myself to 16GB (and save $100+ over Apple's upgrade) - 1TB SATA drive - add a 240GB SSD from OWC For slightly more than Apple's upgrade from 1TB SATA to 256GB SSD, I get a SSD drive and get to also keep the SATA drive. I've seen the OWC video on how to install a second "disk" drive in a Mini, and I can handle that. But I want the SSD to be the boot drive. With no optical drive and no optical disc with OSX, I guess I can just use a disk utility to copy the SATA drive to the SSD drive. But since the drives are different capacities, I'm not sure how that is done and whether the disk utility that comes with Mavericks can do that. Maybe I would need to use some 3rd party utility? Thanks for any tips.
