I am jazzed. I finally stopped analyzing and pulled the trigger tonight on a Craig's List 2012 Mac Mini. Woo Hoo! 2.6 i7, 16GB RAM, 512 SSD (Samsung 840 Pro), 1TB HDD, WL KB & Mouse, USB SUperDrive, IR conn. on board broken (USB IR cost $20 so no worries). He even threw in a 20 button keypad (iHome wired). I paid his asking price of $1,000. I was waiting for a price drop from Amazon (or anywhere) on the two new 24" Dell U2415 monitors I plan to buy on or before Black Friday when yesterday Amazon's price popped back up by $20 to $259.99. Doooh! I think it might drop back down in next day or two. I found camelcamelcamel on Amazon which is cool and tells you the last 5 price changes on an item. cool. One will be connected via HDMI and one from the Thunderbolt port. Can I use a Mini DP to Mini DP cable (Monoprice 12001)? I think that is compatible w/ Thunderbolt, right? I'm undecided if I want to leave the two drives in fusion mode as they are right now or split them. Do I really want/need a 1.5 TB fusion drive??? Since the entire used drive on my current late 2006 iMac is only about 225 GB's I think separating the 512 SSD might be the way to go. When my iMAc started acting wiggy, I got scared and spent $100 for a 3TB external drive and made Carbon Copy clone copies on it. Having a slow 5400 internal 1TB HDD may be just for... I have no idea ;o) The external is USB 3.0 and has my Time machine and several bootable clones on diff. partitions. Almost midnight How'd THAT happen... sleep for me. play tomorrow.
