Hello all, recently my 2009 MBP died and so i have decided to replace it with a Mac Mini. I have around £1000 to spend, i will be producing music, videos and occasionally some photo editing and I aim to get the best performing most future proof machine for the money. The refurbished section doesn't seem as attractive for the Mini as it does some of the other products plus i can get 0% finance when purchasing new. I travel a lot due to work but I'll always have access to a monitor, keyboard ect. my plans were to go for a 2.6 quadcore I7, 16 GB ram, 250 GB SSD Mac mini however I have a few queeries: Is it worth the £160 extra to go with the SSD version offered by apple or am I better off going with an aftermarket drive? Is there much differance in performance between what apple offers and aftermarket options? I know the MM in long due an upgrade and I'd be happier to wait for that before buying, however, I don't have access to a computer at present (currently typing on library windows computer) and really need to get my old stuff off my MPB hard drive and update my external storage drives. Would it be feasible to just buy a MM, do what i need done and return it within 14 days and just sit it out untill the MM is updated? Any help is much appreciated.
