The i7 upgrade is something that you will not see too much improvement. The standard i7 is fine. Get the Fusion drive!!! You will see a BIG improvement in speed. Do not open up the Mac Mini unless you have too. It is tight! An i7 Mac Mini with a Fusion Drive is a great machine! You can add RAM yourself. I have 16gig in mine. You can use a USB3 drive for external storage, and you will be VERY pleased.

As long as you are good with working on small parts the Mac mini is actually Apple's easiest computer to take apart to service and upgrade. It is very tight but extremely well engineered and designed and everything comes apart and goes back together very easily. I can take the mini apart in less than five minutes.

That said, the Fusion drive is highly recommended and then in the future you could open the mini and replace both drives. Great little computer. I use a 2010 model for a HTPC.
