  • What Mac Mini for use with Adobe CC?


    I thought about getting a Mac Mini to use with a Wacom Cintiq Display(either 22HD or 27QHD) and I was wondering what would be best for the execution of the Adobe programs.

    It seems that most of the people prefer the 2012 Mac mini with the quad core as opposed to the current gen using two hearts.

    This brings me to two questions:

    I see a huge difference between the quad core and dual core in the adobe programs?

    8 GB RAM is enough or should I opt for 16 GB?

    Otherwise, the mac mini may be a poor choice for what I would do, so any feedback is appreciated!

    Thank you!

    What Adobe suggest to their CC minimum specifications in OS X, it

    should not be necessary to buy a quad-core (they say that it would use all the cores).

    A set of Photoshop CC system requirements suggest higher specs than one

    Another help page for Adobe. This page shows the highest specifications, but can

    not reflect the version that you are considering:

    •Photoshop CC 2015.x system requirements and languages

    If for some reason you happen across a 2012 end i7 2.3 or 2.6 GHz quad with

    two 1 TB hard drives, they would be more easily upgraded to run an SSD and

    keep a rotating disc; or install two SSDs. between that and 16 GB of RAM, these

    should do a quick little computer. Rotational hard drives are the bottleneck.

    But probably not necessary for Adobe photoshop CC. The graphics processor

    is a limitation if you use intense graphic applications. GPU shares

    standard memory with the system; From memory, there is little or no dedicated graphics.

    Although I have a Late 2012 Mac Mini i7 2.3 GHz quad-core (server) with double 1 TB

    5400 RPM hard drive and RAM upgraded to 16 GB total rotation. It can

    Use at least one drive upgraded to 7200 rpm or SSD drive more efficient.

    The Mac Mini which is online store (check to see if there is an official refurb)

    in the middle to upper technical version may be OK. The top level because of the upgrade

    options in the configuration page (select to buy it, then see what options exist)

    might be OK. The lower spec Mini doesn't seem to be viable for serious users.

    New versions available now, because, you choose the configuration when

    you order the computer: you buy an upgrade level you think you might need.

    Memory is affixed, then exercise your ESP skills to look ahead, before buying.

    The new Mac Mini 'top model' has better graphics than model end 2012.

    An advantage for the Mini is you can choose monitors, peripherals, etc. An old

    new stock Mini would have some OS X who was active as a base level.

    Since none of these units have a system backup media. Is online recovery there.

    My Mini comes with the Mavericks 10.9; 10.9.5 functioning properly. Partitioned,

    the discs could dualboot mulitple systems and their applications more recent specifications.

    (You can pay like nine awards for the end of 2012 Mini i7 quad, used clean-shaped).

    I had considered to be a non - retina MacBook Pro 13 inch 2.5 GHz for once.

    It was the time when they were more common in the 'special offers' Apple

    refurb store page online at decent price; then buy RAM upgrade later.

    In any case, this has become a long rant a few detours or details were

    omitted for the sake of clear path back to the main topic. Since I was late

    2012, mac Mini and it's more of the half upgraded for most all that he can do

    I would probably say try a. If you can find a new one at a fair cost.

    If the cost is too high, you can get a new Mac Mini to higher specification

    the Apple Store. They are dual-core. Adobe applications do not seem to need

    the advantage of the use of quad-core processors or. (these run virtual cores, too;)

    so if you have the appropriate application, the quad core turn eight - virtual.)

    The option AppleCare extended warranty covers to buy new equipment.

    It would have supplied with El Capitan, if the current new stock. This fall, there may be macOS

    Sierra - if you happen to get that stock again - at the end of the year. Not sure

    If or when the hardware upgrade version configurations may appear.

    Anyway, it's more a kind of letter. Sorry about that...!

  • How to control a Mac mini with HDMI ports fries and lightning? (The rest is ok)

    Recently, a lightning strike fried video output (HDMI and lightning) ports on my Mac Mini end of 2012. As far as I know, the rest of the machine works fine. It's just blind. I can't have everyone working on this, but I don't want to throw a perfectly (well, almost perfectly) computer works.

    If I can get a control over the Mac Mini for a few days, I could set up as a dedicated time Machine or maybe even an iTunes or media Server. How can I achieve this?

    Configure the screen sharing on the Mac.

    To do this, you must have another recent Mac.

    You can start the problem Mac in target disk mode, connect the two Mac by FireWire or Thunderbolt, boot the Mac problem with button down T, boot the first Mac since the Mac HD problem and sharing Setup screen /. c-os-x-1296285

    Alternatively, you can take the drive out of the Mac problem and start another Mac that and configure sharing screen.

    You can also get a USB video card and put in place by the target disk mode or by removing the similar disk for screen sharing
