Hi all, New poster but long time Mac fan (about 31 years...starting with a 128k!) I've been chugging along with a Late 2012 Mac Mini for a while now, and it's finally time to upgrade. I more or less do pretty basic home user stuff, but have a reasonably big (few hundred gb) photos library, and do a bit of Photoshop work. No video stuff, no gaming. The late 2012 Mini is OK, but it just get pretty slow with Photos and Photoshop from time to time, especially with 2 users logged in. I'm leaning towards the 3.0GHz 6-core i5, with 256gb storage (I'll buy 32gb RAM too, but not from Apple, and I plan to buy a 1Tb Samsung X5 Thunderbolt 3 external SSD too). But I just have a few concerns / thoughts before I spend the money, and would love some input from the community: - I have a 1Tb drive at the moment and I'm using 750gb. 520gb of that is in the user folders, about 30gb is taken up with OS and apps, and the remaining 200gb is....I don't know! Even checking hidden files, I can't really see anything which makes up the missing 200gb. I don't have a lot of iOS backups, iCloud Drive local storage is counted in the aforementioned 520gb...so not sure where the remainder is gone. My plan is to use the 256gb internal SSD for OS and apps, and the external 1Tb SSD for data - home folders, photos and so on. I know the 1Tb will be enough, but with my "system" seemingly taking up 230gb today, I'm a bit concerned about the 256gb SSD, even though I can't work out what 200gb of that is made up of! - As someone who mainly does home user tasks, a lot of Photos work and a little bit of Photoshop, would I be better with the faster clock speed (but 4-core) i3, or the slower clock speed (but 6-core) i5? Geekbench scores suggest the i5, but I'd love to hear any thoughts. Appreciate any thoughts...as unfortunately once these two options are set, they can't be changed! Many thanks in advance. Cheers, Febs.
