After 15 years of using windows I am planning to move in to Mac.

I am planning to buy 2.6GHz Mac Mini.

Can you guys tell me the best upgrade for Money 16 GB RAM or 1TB Fusion Drive.

i am planning to use xcode, Blender, Unity 3d, Photoshop, Dreamviewer.

Please help me to choose.

If you've got 8GB RAM already I'd say the Fusion Drive, as that'll vastly improve real-world performance and application loading. Of course try get both upgrades if you can afford it, or preferably pure Flash (though this'd definitely be expensive).

Fusion drive, you may have to close down a couple of apps occasionally if you have less RAM and keep everything open and running, but the fusion drive will make everything open instantly work fluidly and give you a much better computing experience. Unless of course you are running multiple VM's and then I'd say go with a 256GB SSD and 16gb RAM and external drives for storage.
