There are many threads about people asking for the ideal home recording setup. Maybe this will provide food for thought for some people. I'm going to buy a new Mac mini to replace my Macbook Pro (2013) for recording purposes. https://www.apple.com/uk/mac-mini/ I'll upgrade the CPU to the 6 core i7 3.2Ghz. And I'll go for 128GB SSD internal. The total cost of that will be £850 or so (without UK tax). I'll upgrade the RAM myself to 32GB, which costs around £200. 64GB gets more expensive, and probably not necessary yet. That little thing is beating out most Mac Pros, rivalling the 10 core xeon versions which cost £4,000+. That processor can easily handle audio production. The SSD read/write speeds are ~2-3GB per second, which is insane. My MBP is pretty quick at 600MB/s, and things load quickly enough. That will be great for handling large sound libraries, loading virtual instruments etc. Since it has 4 thunderbolt 3 ports, adding external storage is no problem. External SSDs are pretty cheap and can be bought later for even cheaper. Or, if just for archiving old projects, spend basically nothing and get some huge capacity HDD. The ports also allow connecting multiple 5K monitors, eGPUs etc if needed. And last of all, it's tiny (as small as an audio interface), silent, and I'm confident it will easily last 6+ years. My MacBook Pro is 5 years old now and it's traveled the world, been carried to work and back every day, received plenty of drops, dents and dings - and is still going strong. A desktop device which spends life on a shelf in a home office will last even longer. Personally, I think this thing is phenomenal. You can probably spec out a faster PC for slightly cheaper. But for me, I like OS X, have found it very stable, and I prefer using Logic and other Apple software (Pages, Keynote, Numbers, iCloud calendars, notes etc etc). This thing seems like a no-brainer.
