Mac Mini (Mid 2010)


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out if I can at least get started using Logic Pro X on my system or if I should upgrade before I even bother purchasing it.  Here are my specs:


Mac mini (Mid 2010)

Processor - 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory - 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

Graphics - NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB



Obviously, I will need an additional drive for all the extra downloads, and will most likely be crying out for more RAM pretty quickly.  My main concern is the CPU.  Will it work okay or be a dismal failure?

I am not certain about the 1.3.x version family, but I ran the whole 1.2.x family (even on Sierra) on that unit. 


Initially I did it with 4GB, but that's a struggle. You would really need to manage your plug ins and take advantage of the Low Latency feature.  When I bumped it to 8GB, it was like a whole new machine.


The original HD, which I think is a 5400 RPM spindle, was enough to handle 20 or so tracks. It actually worked really well. Your SSD would likely do even better.
