Hi everyone, I'm still having trouble deciding between these two. For roughly the same price (about £820), I could get: a) an iMac 2011 i5 refurb from apple store b) a mac mini 2012 i7 (from store with student discount), upgraded to 2.6GHz with 8GB RAM and SSD. The RAM and SSD would be bought separately (might even be able to get 16GB if I can find it cheap enough). I already have a nice 24" samsung monitor, with mouse and keyboard, so the 21.5" iMac would be smaller. Can anyone help me with this. I am aware the graphics would be better on the iMac, as would the quicker stock hard drive. However, the smaller screen is a bit off putting as I do design work and the space really counts! Conversely, the extra speed would be nice too. I don't do any gaming whatsoever but my base 2011 mac mini was a bit jerky on photoshop/fireworks when performing colour adjustments/levels etc... on large images. Actually, any work on large images was a bit slow. This is why I want a quicker machine. I'm torn between the two! Thanks for any input. Sam.
