I'm about to order an i7 Mac Mini. Will replace RAM myself, stuck on the darn soldered SSD. I'm torn between 512GB and 1TB options, maybe some of you have some insight since i dont have any distance anymore. Pros for 1TB: - no need for another external drive right now (1TB is enough for me) - faster write speeds Cons: - 480$ extra. - stuck in mini Pros for 512TB: - cheaper - could get a nVME TB3 enclosure with Samsung 970 for about the same cash. - could use the same TB3 drive to use with a macbook pro when necessary. Cons - poor write speeds, need for external drive.
