The new Mac Minis have super fast SSD Drives. I measured read times of 2500MB/s which is 5 times faster than the SSD drive in my old mac mini. But these drives are super super expensive. (An extra US$1400 for a 2TB drive). So I thought it might be an option to buy a Mac Mini with a small internal drive (256GB) and add an external SSD drive and combine them into a fusion drive.

I have installed OS X Mojave and it is working nicely.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that some of my older and more obscure applications are still working.

Photoshop CS 5.1 is working. I was expecting it to break, but as usual I just had to load the Java run script libraries and it worked.

Illustrator CS 5.1 is still working.

Dragon is working. Nuance claim they have not tested Dragon with OS X Mojave but it is working for me on my late 2012 Mac mini and I can dictate into Microsoft Word and Pages and Mail.

Scansnap Pro is working and imports into Devonthink Pro.

Microsoft Word 2011 still works.

The only app that seems to be crashing is Online Bible.

Instead download the installer from here: Apple’s Mojave download page
