MacMini: 16GB vs 8GB, Hard Drive vs SSD

Another option:

MacMini with PCIe SSD (OWC Mercury Helios + Accelsior) = FASTER STILL

It doesn't list as compatible with the mini. I imagine this is because the mini has no pciE port, or does it use the TB port on the Helios enclosure? What downsides of going from pciE to TB?

Helios works over TB and there is no downside in fact its one of the best ways to get max performance over TB with your SSD. I've tried multiple enclosures and the Helios paired with a PCIe card + OCZ Vector 512GB SSD ran the fastest out of all the enclosures I tried. See some of my results on this older thread.

In fact I just wish the Helios allowed for full length cards as I would love to try the Sonnet Tempo Pro PCIe cards (accepts 2 SSD's) in it.
