Hello. I currently have a 3 year old windows laptop, connected to a 24 inch monitor and Ipad 2. I use the ipad for the university. I am also getting a kindle next month. I am very glad with my Ipad, and i have worked a little on others macbook laptops and i like them very mucw, so I am concidering another apple device. I will be using my computer for photography: photoshop lightroom, etc. Which would be better? A mac mini i7 2,6 ghz (i will add later ssd and 16 gigs of ram) or a very powerful windows pc with a better processor (i7 3770) and a way better video card for the same money. (i actually dont play games, so i dont think that i will miss a video card on the mac mini). I also spent 2 months a year not in the city where my university is and the mac mini is a very portable desktop that i would be able to carry with me. What would you suggest?
