I have a serious buyer interested in my late '09 27" iMac i7. Great computer and does everything that I need. But I have the upgrade bug and would like to sell it and get a either a '11 mini or '12 mini + ATD with the eventual goal of using that to hold me over until the Haswell mac mini is released. Based on what I am going to get for it, I will only have to pay ~$200 out of pocket to get the Mac mini + ATD. With ~3 years of use on the computer, that seems like a fairly decent deal for me. The only reason I can think of not upgrading would be due to losing the discrete GPU (Radeon HD 4850). I play occasional games as well as do photo and video editing. But from several posts on here, it seems many have no issue with the Intel HD 4000. So I should be fine with that. The other issue is the ATD which is due for an update fairly soon based on what many are expecting. I want an Apple display because of the integrated webcam/speakers/thunderbolt/USB. But not sure I want to buy the current ATD based on the upgrade cycle and missing out on the new design by a few months. So I guess I could get the Mac mini, find a cheap monitor on Craigslist to hold me over until the new ATD is released. Eventually I would be doing the SSD + 16GB RAM upgrades. So really, is there any reason not for me to sell my iMac and get a mini? Well except for Haswell coming out next year, but that is a completely different story.
