If I can help it, after using a retina iPhone and iPad, I would never go retina-less again. The screens are just a joy to use.
So I recommend you get an iPhone 5 and 13" RMBP and wait until next year when Apple puts a retina display in the iPad mini. I do love my iMac, but I wouldn't see the point if you're only going to get the 21.5". The internals aren't much better than the RMBP. Get the laptop, and an external monitor if you need the screen space. But you can just set the RMBP to display more, and you probably won't need it

1 Mac Mini - This is our digital hub and my wife's work computer.

Along with monitor, mouse, keyboard, Ipad accessories, speaker system, and Iphone accessories we are in for less then $2000 for the entire setup.
We have the same setup. We both also have older windows laptops if we need portability.

Once the study is re-done in my apartment I may purchase a 27" iMac since I'm looking to do some video editing.

Precisely! It's very personal, each of us having unique usage scenarios.

The best way to determine what one's needs are is to write down how you use what you currently have. What further needs (if any) you have, and then what you may desire "just for fun".

Once you've got it listed out, write pros and cons of each of your current devices, the new ones you are considering, etc. You've got to be willing to do the work if you want a good outcome.
