I'm sure he will be able to open it, and take a look at the autoload
Nah, it's still amazingly efficient. Possibly with the exception of most Alchemy patches and that stupid Ultrabeat wrapper they're calling "Drum Machine Designer" (which is a disgrace in each and every aspect, really).
A 128GB SSD would however possibly end up in problems installing the factory content in its full glory - and moving it seems to be a major hassle (even if Logic now supports that from inside).
If I were to buy such a Mini to run Logic, I'd possibly go for the 3.0GHz 6-Core i5 and 256GB (basic options), then upgrade the RAM myself later on and get a decent external USB3-drive for anything else but the factory content. Comes in at €1249, which - obviously - isn't cheap at all, but it should run Logic pretty well.
But seriously, for that amount of money, I'd possibly still purchase a second hand 2x6-core Mac Pro from 2010 or 2012. Should go for less money, even with 32GB RAM and, say, two Samsung EVO 860 500GB SSDs. Needs a new GPU for Mojave, but well, so far you can still use High Sierra for anything just fine.
That very machine would offer less CPU juice per thread (so some Alchemy patches might still use up an entire thread), but if you lay out things carefully, the 24 threads available will take you a long way, really.
