    Best Mini Mac Hard Drive for CC


      I am getting my Grandson a Mac Mini to run CC and would like input on hard drive choice. He will be a high school Sophomore in fall, taking the Junior class multi media course and be using Premier and Photoshop quite a bit.

      I am looking at: Mac Mini

      • 2.3GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
      • 16GB

      Now if you had your choice which hard drive would you want and why. I am taking in consideration price, speed and scratch disk space and would like to get the best bang for the buck. I am considering the SSD for speed and then maybe down the road I could add a external for Scratch disk space. I have not use CC but was in PrePress for many years and spent a lot of time in Photoshop myself so I know he has much to learn and would like to keep his frustration level to a minimum. Any thoughts?


      1TB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm,

      1TB Fusion Drive,

      256GB Solid State Drive


      Thank you for your input:-)
