I bought a couple of Mac Mini Servers QC i7s - late 2012s..
upgraded the ram to 16GBs on both
and then to make the units fly - plus maximize the storage I installed a couple of Seagate firecudas.. 2x2TB each in each unit.
I am using them as servers - i did a soft raid level 1 - with a company called https://www.softraid.com
been using them for over 10 years, amazing product.
now these minis fly like they have SSDs..
firecuda - by Seagate - 5 yr warranty - hybrid SSD/HD - low voltage
MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019): 2.6 Ghz 6 core i7/16GBs/1TBSSD
Asus MX27U 27", Matias BackLite Wireless Full size Keyboard
Datto S3X1 1TB SSD w/offsite cloud protection for time machine, Apple MagicPad2
Government jobs / work places : it smells like wet dogs, so do some people that work there. Everyone moves like they were injured!, It's like a low budget rehab centre
