I am currently running the original unibody MB from 2008 with 2.0 Ghz, 4GB and 250 GB HD. I have just noticed when working with my 80 GB Aperture library things have become a little sluggish, but not unworkable. The bottom line is that I have about a $1500 budget and am looking to add something new to my setup, so I need the MR community to help me out, I am really torn. Here are the options: 1. Mac Mini-with i7 upgrade and 8GB Ram 2. iPad 2-64 GB WiFi 3. 21" iMac-with all options but SSD 4. Middle of the road 27" iMac (stretching the budget a bit...is it worth it since I already have a 24" LED Cinema Display that I could run dual with the 21" iMac?) The mini is attractive because I already have the mouse, keyboard and display. iPad is attractive because it's just awesome and I need something for around the house, but with the prospect of HiRes iPad 3 in early 2012 makes me a little nervous. And I am totally split between the 2 possible iMacs....Please Help!
