I'm looking at picking up an i7 Mac Mini and have the common debate about how much storage and how much RAM to get. I'm debating between 512 and 1TB for the SSD. The $400 difference is pretty steep and could be put towards an external SSD which could net more overall storage. That would require more clutter on my desk and perhaps not have the performance, depending on if I went for something like a Samsung 2 TB T5 for a larger, slower SSD or a 1 TB X5 for a smaller, faster SSD. For memory, I'm going back and forth between 16 and 32 gig. I'm not quite sure what the sweet spot here should be. I have 16 gig on my work 15" MBP and that seems fine for most uses, but I will be doing some photo and 4k video editing and more memory always helps. Having said that, I'm not making a full length feature movie so 64 gig seems like it would probably be overkill. If I go the 16 gig route I may just order it preinstalled for warranty and sheer laziness, though it's obviously cheaper to put it in myself. With the obscene up-charge for 32 gig I'd definitely put it in myself. What do you recommend?
