Prior to purchasing this Mac Mini, I had ordered a beginning version of Pro Tools and learned that Mac was the preferred hardware according to users. During the past 15+ years, I have built multiples of 3 PCs sequentially for our personal use (they now include: 1 16gb i7 and 2 16gb i5 PCs). Since I had never used a Mac, I decided to try out this Mac product while studying various Avid software. To keep the initial cost down, I ordered the 8gb i7, rather than start with the 16gb unit and I ordered the 16gb Mac ram upgrade that popped up during my reading of the details. (I searched and found web videos showed the ease of upgrading the ram in Mac Minis ) The Amazon dealer was extremely helpful in answering my novice Mac questions, (which didn't include the feasibility of upgrading this model to 16gb). During my software studies, I have learned that Avid Media Composer recommends 16gb of ram. While searching for a tech to do the ram upgrade, I found out that this Mac Mini model was the first to have the ram soldered in place, thereby, eliminating my upgrade plan. Since the oversight was mine, I have not reported this matter to Amazon or to the dealer who was extremely helpful in answering my many Mac questions. If you are considering an i7 Mac Mini and 8gb will serve your future needs, I recommend the purchase of this excellent unit from Techno Intelligence.
