So this seems like it has been forever. Just thought I would let you know that I am finally doing this!
I have a Macbook Pro (13" Retina, Late 2013) but I just love my Mini 10v and want to use it for coding MCUs, typing, and browsing. I just got it back from my sister, who used it for her last 2 years of high-school.
I chose a 120 GB Intel SSD
I got on Amazon, it was priced very well (approx. $70). Currently running CCC. I don't think I will have to run NBI, fingers crossed.
I'll update when it is done...
The newest OSX is nice, but Snow Leopard (10.6.8) will always have a special place in my heart.
