I think that too just offering alternatives. We use a raid 5 for the picture storage, 16 tb in volumes so TB works well for us. The mini has been raid0 for 5 years so it works just fine.

The 2012 mini quad core is only faster by 15% in ghz processor speed and 1333 vs 1600 in the memory bus, the harddrive or ssd bus is the same, not a lot of difference imo. The big difference is the usb 3 ports on the 2012, but we used thunderbolt for the external drive. With lightroom 6 having no graphics hardware acceleration in the develope module was the real issue. And the 2012 mac will not allow that acceleration either. And our mini with raided ssd's is twice as fast as a single ssd in a mini. That you do notice and can easily be added to your 2012, ifixit rocks for that.

We had the 2011 mac mini server with a quad core 2.0ghz processor, 16 gb ram, and a pair of 240gb ssd's in raid 0 to both double their speed and storage. We used external drives for both file storage and time machine backups. That being said it got way too slow for us even using 24mp files. We put the ssd's in ourselves. IF you can afford it get a mid level imac 27" 5k with a 2tb fusion drive or larger fusion drive. We sprung for the most blown out one and it is night and day faster over the mini using lr6 or aperture. The mid level imac would give over 85% of what our system does at around half the price. But you can do the drive swap yourself on the mini if you go that route. Pm us if you want more info.
