Hello, First post here.. I'm considering upgrading from a 2010 base model iMac to a Mac mini (more flexible). The only question in my mind is whether to get the 2012 base model or the 2011 model with the 6630M dedicated GPU. I'm not a "gamer" and it's been more than a month since I last played a game on the iMac, but I don't have any other computers/consoles to play games on, and I would like to play the upcoming Simcity - preferably Diablo 3, Starcraft 2 and Trine 2 too. Would these games run passably well at 1280*720 on the 2012 Mac mini? Or should I go with the 2011 model with a dedicated GPU (6630M)? I'm also interested in photography, and use Aperture for my RAW photos. The two models score similar in Geekbench AFAIK. I would lose USB 3 if I chose the 2011 model, anything else? Can I go for 16 GB RAM with the 2011 model? Are its SATA ports of the 6 Gb/s kind? Here in Turkey, after all taxes, the 2012 base model costs around 800 $. Second-hand 2011 minis with GPU's go for around 850 - 875 $. I could try to find a new 2011 mini with GPU as stock clearance, but it wouldn't be cheaper than 950 $. If I knew the 2012 mini would handle the new Simcity reasonably well, I'd not bother with the 2011 model at all. It's also quieter from what I've read. Thanks in advance for your comments!
