I am working off of a modified MacbookPro8,3 at present. I'm thinking of buying the latest mac mini for its processing power. Any thoughts on the pros and cons of a mac mini system? (Compared to a MacbookPro at present ... I know there are other, more expensive, systems that are clearly superior.)

I'm sure it's possible. The built integrated graphics card will not give you the best performance, but it should work. I'd upgrade the memory to at least 8GB, or better still max it out to 16GB, and get some decent storage.
I work in Manhattan, USA, but at night I cross the waters to sleep in Brooklyn, USA.

Also, post production is not an afterthought!

Oh, I plan on maxing the RAM and going SSD with plug-in additional SSD drives. Doesn't look like it can add the second internal drive like past models, which is hugely disappointing.
