I am in desperate need of a new desktop. I have a strict budget of $1500. To save some green, I was looking at the refurbs on Apple's website. With my budget I could get a 2011 21.5" iMac with: 2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 4GB memory 1TB hard drive AMD Radeon HD 6770M graphics with 512MB memory It would also allow me to come very much under budget at $1269. Or, I could go with a 2010 27" iMac with: 2.8GHz Intel Quad-Core i5 processor 4GB memory 1TB hard drive ATI Radeon HD 5750 graphics with 1GB memory This would put me right at budget at $1449. The reason I was considering the 2010 27" with the larger GPU card is because I do tend to game (though it's more like Civilization IV and V) and other strategy games as opposed to Crysis, Olbivion, etc (I use my 360 for those). I also will use bootcamp, edit photos and videos of my daughter, as well as create DVDs with iMovie. I thought the real estate of the 27" would be cool to help with all that multi-tasking, but would feel fine going with the 21.5" 2011 model if it offers improved performance. I tried looking through some threads, but it was hard to find these two compared. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
