The Mac Mini can not be considered a pro model for photogs and retouchers at all. Not with one tb port. To use a dual monitor setup AND use the tb port for an external drive using tb like the OWC helios PCIe, you HAVE to use an apple display wich is awful for serious color work. It's a shame, was so close to ordering one of these for the price it would have been unbeatable. Only option is the MBP retina for the dual tb ports...but that's twice the expense. New macpro would be the only other serious option if it ever comes out.

    Hi, while I agree...

    I have no idea if it'd work for what you want, but it's an option many aren't aware of.

    I have a Mac mini and I do SERIOUS photo retouching, and I don't have an Apple display. it would be nice with a second monitor but the monitor I have is 27" and works just fine

    Only reports I've seen so far is it was better color than most any HDMI setups.
