Good advice from the Apple guy and Baselite. I will be doing the same thing

(except as a replacement for an iMac) as soon as the next generation of Minis comes out, which should be quite soon.

The only thing that I disagree with is that I think only 8 gigs of RAM is necessary; this is based on a recent (MacWorld?) article showing that going from 8 to 16 is negligible as far as performance and value. It you were to go to 16, I'd suggest doing it via a third-party supplier to save some money.

Update: Forgot something - definitely get the Fusion drive, as Baselite pointed out.
