I needed a computer to fit in a rack to run the smaart system on my Presonus Rm32ai mixer. Everything on this Mac has been plug and play, I should have gone Mac years ago, especially just to not have to worry about drivers and configuring. I Added an external drive to record all my shows and rehearsals track by track and I am even using it to run my dmx for lights. Rock solid stuff. Handles ableton live and all my plugins beautifully, as well as running dual 40" tv's for monitors in the rehearsal room. I couldn't be happier.

Apple Mac Mini

I was very reluctant to purchase the least expensive option in the apple world but I have not had a single problem I have used this with a Glyph drive for storage because I did elect to get Solid State drive so I only have 256 gigs of storage on the Mac Mini (best move I ever made ) I have over 500 gigs of software on the glyph that I resource with the Mac Mini and the Thunderbolt connection! Quiet as could be incredible processing very very happy again with the recommendations from Delvin from Sweetwater- I should mention that I bought the Mac Mini with 16GB memory - Great people Great purchase

RAM and Hard Drive NOT user upgradeable

Be aware the RAM and hard drive can NOT be upgraded/added to by users of this model (unlike previous Mac Mini models). The RAM is soldered to the motherboard. So, if you think you might need more than the stock RAM (8GB with this dual 2.8GHz model), you'd better order the machine with 16GB, because you can't add to it later. Also, unlike prior models, there is no room for an additional internal hard drive.
