Ask DN: Thoughts on a Mac Mini as a Design/Dev Solution?

    I have an older model mini that I use as a secondary machine at home. It works well, after I added a SSD and loaded up the ram (make sure you have an SSD and max the ram!). I don't use AE (yet), but it handles large photoshop files pretty well. If I used it all day, every day, I would probably need to upgrade (remember though, this is an older model)

    Macs hold their value really well. You may be able to sell it if you don't like it without being out much cash.
