RE: I got a Mac Mini
I don’t. But I want to RAID0 my dual internal SSD’s and High Sierra cannot be installed to a(n Apple)RAID.

RE: I got a Mac Mini
Is there a systemic reason why that would be the case?

Cuzz Fo Apple.

RE: I got a Mac Mini
This implies that it can be done... https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/moj…t-26641599 by those steps give me serious pause as to wether its worth it or not.
I'm happy with a small, fast boot SSD and oodles of fast connected storage (multiple SSDs in a thunderbolt enclosure).

RE: I got a Mac Mini
I've decided to build a Ryzen 7 box and go whole hog on a Linux desktop. I've got a respectable parts list compiled for $1150.
Now just have to decide whether its worth the extra $350 and go all in on a (low end) Core i9 instead.

I'll still have my 2015 laptop which is just fine. So not Mac-less, but going for a desktop that can pull media server duties in the background and compile my shitty java/scala in a reasonable time frame.

RE: I got a Mac Mini
I snapped up a Mac Mini 2012 with a 2.6GHz i7 (and maxed RAM), a while back. Currently set up with the stock “Apple” 256GB SSD, but two WD Green SSD’s and another dual drive kit are on their way.

I’ve read hopeful things about installing Catalina onto AppleRAID, although this is still unsupported by Apple.

Anyway, I’ll probably have time to revisit all of this after the weekend, so stay tuned!

RE: I got a Mac Mini
I thought the Green variant was only for mechanical drives, there's Green SSDs too?

RE: I got a Mac Mini
Apparently. I got them, because they were listed as SLC. Of course, that turns out to be a lie. They’re TLC with a tiny bit of SLC tacked on. Whatever, they were still pretty cheap.

RE: I got a Mac Mini
Well, the new SSD's are in, with hardly any parts left over. Just the old SSD and its cable, to be precise. So that's a start.

The Apple OEM SSD is some sort of Samsung device (5PD2560/A01, for the curious). Here's how a single SSD from 2012 fares in a Mac Mini i7 running Catalina:

Once the internet recovery is finished, I'll do a test on the single WD Greens for comparison.
