For containers..... Bit over the top
Oh it’s cool, I have a NAS for storing the media, it’s just that the NAS has a weak CPU and struggled to run PLEX server. The Mini’s small storage is not an issue as it’d be used solely for the OS. Great to know it’s a solid option, thanks (y)

"nvme" is just the interface, the technology is still the same and SSDs wear out and fail. Compared to hard disks, modern SSD failure rates are at least a magnitude less in the short term, but they do have limited lives - in fact there is a lot of logic in SSD controllers in order to not use the same cells over and over, so that the drive will last a reasonable time by spreading wear. "A reasonable time" is something like over a decade or so, which may sound good enough, but given the fact things tend to fail in a normal distribution (so some people can get the "tail" end and have an early failure) and that they are not replaceable (with a dead SSD, an M1 system is designed to not even boot from an external drive "for security"), I would not like to get a refurb that has lost part of its finite lifespan. I am not talking about losing a month or two of lifespan, there was an infamous MacOS bug that caused excessive use of the SSD for many users, so an affected SSD could have lost a year or two in wear.
