Hey all, I have a dilemma regarding my office computer. Earlier today, I was exploring the option of getting a Mac Mini for use in my law office as my main computer. I recently convinced all of the other attorneys in my firm to switch to a cloud-based program in combination with Box.com to manage our files and cases. Below is a cut and paste from my other thread in the Mac Mini section: ____________________________________________________ I am an member of a smaller law firm (5 attorneys and 10 paralegals). I have recently convinced the other attorneys that to alter our case management software away from antiquated old Lexis (aka Windows only) software and into a browser based software called Practice Panther. This new software works wonderfully on iPads, iPhones, laptops of any type, etc. We can now bill for our Court appearances before we ever leave the Courthouse at the end of the day, and everyone can access their files, internal notes, etc. from anywhere. My questions is whether a Mac Mini like this work for my main office computer? For those who don't want to click the link, it is a 2014 2.6ghz dual core model with 8gb ram, and a 1 tb HDD. My current computer is a Dell Optiplex 3010 with a 3.4ghz i3 and 4 gb ram. The current Dell drives 3 21" displays. The Dell can also handle the combination of Internet Explorer with 5-10 tabs open at any given time, 2-3 Word documents open, 2-3 pdf's open in Adobe (free version), OUTLOOK open 24/7, and my box.com sync folder open 24/7. Will the Mac Mini be able to handle a similar workload? Will I run into trouble with driving 3 monitors? I will likely be paying for this computer out of pocket. However, if all goes well, I expect to move toward iMacs as part of an incentive program next year. (i.e. for each attorney who bills at least 1950 hours in a 12 month period, that attorney and their paralegals will be provided with iMac computers; 21.5" + an external monitor to paralegals, 27" to attorneys). ____________________________________________________ Now, I am contemplating simply purchasing a TB2 Dock to be used with my 2015 rMBP 13" (i5/258gb/8gb ram). My question is whether this would be harmful to my rMBP in the long run. Will there be issues with overtaxing the internal in driving three external monitors, etc? Is this there another downside/risk that I am not really taking into account? Thanks in advance.
