My mini is on the way, and I'm already planning on what I want to install.
I'll be puting osx on it, no question :mrgreen:
However, I want to be able to take the computer with me and my camera on trips, and therefore wouls like to be able to do some very very light image editing (RAW editing and Photoshop type tweaks). To do so I'll need to install something like Lightroom and Photoshop (or Gimp, etc..) I know space is an issue with the Mini 9 and subsequently I've ordered one with a 32gig SSD
. Even though I've got more space, I don't necessarily want to fill it with programs I will only use ocassionaly. With that it mind, could I isntall Photoshop and Lightroom on an SD card or a flash drive and run them from there when I need the capability? Can anyone see why this wouldn't work?
If this works, I'd probably like to do something similar with Garageband. I use it as a midi processor for live music and would love it if it only took up space on my computer when I was actually using it (defintiely not an everyday type of thing).
Does this make sense? Any thoughts? Thanks!
