- Base Mac Mini and an Apple Magic Trackpad
- From Other World Computing (macsales.com): 8GB RAM, 240GB SSD, two 1.5TB external drives (one for music and pictures, the other for backup)
- ViewSonic VP2655wp IPS monitor
...Plus, I'd let the Apple Store help me with data transfer so I do a little housecleaning instead of the usual Apple mass data dump dance.
I know the above probably isn't the most cost-effective solution, but it seems like it should be quiet (important as I listen to music a lot as I work), fast, small (also important), and hopefully I could keep the monitor for 2+ computer upgrade cycles, maybe even getting its cost down to $100 a year (it costs $900) if I turn out to be really lucky and it lasts a long time. But $200/yr. at least, I would think.
(I really want that monitor. Don't need. Do want.)
So what do you think? Approve? Disapprove?
I appreciate all the help I'm getting with this.
