Mac mini or iMac - As a First Mac Computer!
I'm thinking to get my first Mac computer ever, so I really dunno which Mac I should get. I'm a computer science student. Most of what I'm doing are designing and web/software developing. No video/photo editing or gaming.
Should I get:
iMac 21.5" i5-2.9Ghz With 8G RAM and Fusion Drive.
Mac Mini 2.3GHz Quad i7 With 4G RAM(will change them later) and Fusion Drive.
I've been in confusion for weeks, I'm afraid of regretting after buying a Mac. Dose a mac worth?
Ps: I'd stay with one of them at least for the next 5 years.
thanks, and sorry cause my poor English

Probably the Mini. For what you're doing you won't really be getting any benefit out of the discrete GPU. However, if you want the same quality screen as is in the iMac, sometimes people find it's cheaper to just get the iMac anyway.
