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

If you won't be using the laptop screen, buying a MacBook Pro is overkill.  The QC i7 mini is no slouch ... it posts a Geekbench score of around 13K, and is certainly fast enough to run several CC apps at once.

I would buy 16GB of RAM from another source like Crucial, and certainly go for the Fusion drive if you need the 1TB of space.  If not, I'd probably opt for the 256 SSD.

The Mac mini is a well-kept secret.  In reality, it's a very fast and capable little performer.
