Looking at the Mac mini for installing FMS13. A 4 core is recommended and RAM is cheap, but is there a big difference in database performance detween using 2 x 1TB ATA drives or 2 x 256GB SSD. This is a considerable cost to upgrade to SSD, but if it helps the database run faster I will do it.
Currently running FMPA12 on SSD to host the database.
I have read there were some issues running FMS with OSX Server. Not sure if that is the case with FMS13 or not.
