I currently have an aging Mac Pro 1,1 upgraded to 2x4c @ 3GHz, SSD boot drive, Bluray burner, 16 GB RAM, etc.... The machine still runs fine but it can't be much more upgraded, does not run the latest OS, could fail any day (almost 7y old) and isn't particularly power efficient. Apart from switching to a more recent MP, I had a look at the latest Mac Mini - the late 2012 Core i7 @ 2,6 GHz is a tad faster than my current machine, but way more efficient and runs OSX ML. I don't really need fast graphics. I could connect my 30" HP screen through a DP-dual link DVI adapter and my digital cable TV receiver to the Firewire port. But I currently have close to 5TB of HDD in my Mac Pro: 80 GB SSD boot drive 2x1 TB of data in RAID 0 2TB Time Machine 750 GB of movies (clone of media-hard drive connected to TV set) plus an eSATA/USB 2.0 dock used for cloning And while I could move the SSD to the Mac Mini to set up a fusion drive I can't find any affordable Thunderbolt-based solution to hook my HDDs, not to mention my 5"1/4 Bluray burner. Any clue?
