    • Best answerYou can’t upgrade the internal storage as it is soldered. The only option is to special order a mini with more storage and pay Apple’s high premium. You can obviously add fast external storage cost-effectively, however I ran in to an unexpected snag when trying to migrate a TM backup of my old User dir from a dead MacBook Pro to my new mini with only 250 gb SSD internal and 1 TB external storage. The migration utility wants any Users dir to go to the internal drive and it is an all or none migration. My old User dir is about 300 gb so it was no go. Maybe a Users dir could be recreated on the external drive and then the internal Users could be a link?

  • Q: What software is installed.....Need Garage Band.  (5 Answers)

    By Orbin 

    • Best answerGarageBand appears to be included. See https://www.apple.com/mac-mini/specs/ and scroll towards the bottom of the page to see a list of all "Built-in Apps". Note, they do specify "iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are available on the Mac App Store. Downloading apps requires an Apple ID and a device that is compatible with the OS version required for each app." I believe mine had it on there already when I first booted up.
