Yosemite works great on my early 2011 MacBook Pro with 8 GB of memory. I'm sure it will work fine on your Minii.

Do I really need them, if I don't download/store any video, pics or music, etc.? It is a Quad-core i7, w/ 4GB & 1 TB hard drive. Thanks for help in determining my actual needs for this unit, & any advice here to optimize any more than it is.

I never had a Mac before, so this is 1st one & unsure of how/what is needed additionally.

If you click the Apple symbol at the top left of screen, then select "About this MAC". Then go to the storage tab.

Do you see that the hard drive is 1TB or is it 1.12 TB?

The reason I ask about the drive size is that it's possible you have a fusion drive, http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202574

With that, you get two physical drives (one solid state and one spinning disc).
