Mac mini Qmaster i5 or i7
on Nov 24, 2011 at 10:05:02 am

Hi All,

Lately I've been investigating if it's possible to gat a mac mini with a thunderbolt to PCI converter to use as services provider for my Final Cut server. I discovered it's possible to ha a mac mini in my network running compressor 4 which is co-operating with the Compressor 3 on my final cut server. The only question I have left, which model should I use? is it better to have a mac mini Lion server of just the standard mac mini with an i7 upgrade en 8Gig's of RAM?

Thanks in advance

Kind regards

I would get the i7. Compressor is very efficient at using multiple cpu cores.

Brad Wright is software engineer, so it may be difficult to understand what he is saying. He is always happy to explain his greater detail.
