I can't think any reason why a new Mac Mini with thunderbolt, FW800 and USB wouldn't work well with this unit and PT10 Native.
I'm thinking of going that route as a replacement for my g4/002/ PT6.4 home system which I use mostly for overdubs of single instruments, vocals, and the occasional Horn or two. Plus mixing.

I was going to plunk down the loot for a new loaded mac pro and maybe an omni or small hd system but I keep thinking that this little 700buck mini might just do the trick.

The only thing else I think I may need is a USB midi box like a Motu Micro express or M-audio midisport.
