Intel Mac Mini for BBCSO

edited September 2021 in Hardware and Computers

I'm am planning to get a new Intel Mac Mini for BBCSO. I have Core right now and might upgrade to Pro later. How important is it to have the i7 processor? It's a 200 dollar upgrade. If the i5 can run it fine in Logic Pro, then I would rather spend more on a storage upgrade. Is the i5 good enough or should I get the i7?
