I have used a 2011 Mini with a 6630m card, 8 gigs ram,

Aperture library on an external FW800 drive. Works very,very well.

The new i7 mini, IMO, will take sales from the new iMacs. User upgradeability

on ram, probably HD, FW 800, USB 3.0 , HDMI. Lots of good stuff as well

as "only" $800. Imo, this is the mac to buy.




I have to agree. The new mini will eat into iMac sales no doubt.

I've been a longtime MBP user and was waiting patiently for a new iMac but was a little disappointed that FW800 was dropped on the iMac and the "slimmer" design is of no real benefit sitting on a desktop IMO.

I went ahead and ordered the new 2.6 GHz i7 Mini with the Fusion drive option and 16GB third party RAM and just found a nearly new second hand 27" Thunderbolt Display for a really good price so I'm good to go!



I am also a MBP user and I am thinking about a Mac Mini, the same configuration as yours in fact. The 'integrated' graphics, they will be fine for Photoshop use? I am just after a small footprint computer which I can run PS CS6 on and edit my photo's.

The integrated Intel HD4000 graphics are more than capable for CS6 and LR4.
