First post on here! Hello to everyone. I'm in a weird spot right now, I had plans to purchase a 27" 2012 imac with a an i7 for graphic design work (I would be working in illustrator and photoshop and those would be the only real thing ran... No games) but I've seen online from many different people that they are shipping with the LG screens... Leading to image retention and this frame me out. I live an hours drive from the nearest apple store and would have to rely on them for repairs... So my question is, would the maxed out 2012 Mac mini be a viable option to run these programs? Or should I take a chance on the imac? I would be purchasing a maching Thunderbolt Display (that shouldn't have image retention) Thanks for all your help!
