I have the same mini with 16Gb RAM. My files are on a Promise Pegasus R6 12TB. I'm using 27" monitor (Eizo CG275W).

Working with images in Photoshop CS6 is slow with this set-up. When adjusting sliders in ACR, the image can take several seconds to update on the monitor. Zooming in and out of an image in Photoshop is laggy.

I'm mainly working with 12MP files from a D700.

I'm not sure what the answer is, but I'm thinking of giving the current mini a spin.

If it helps I am running a 2.3ghz quad core 2012 mini with 16GB of Ram. Working with Olympus Raw files of a similar size to yours. With Lightroom 4 all adjustments are in real time and there is no lag what so ever with zooming. I am also not running fusion drive.

What size monitor are you using?
