I'm currently considering a few factors... the major one being that the current Thunderbolt monitor is WAY past it's prime and is spec'd too poorly to buy at 1000 bucks, but I would like to get a machine that has the quality of current iMac monitor. My current set up is the 2.3Ghz Mac Mini with a 256gb SSD and the 1TBHDD on a smaller 23 inch monitor. But I'm wondering if the new 2013 27 inch iMac would be an upgrade or a downgrade from my Mac Mini for video editing? On one hand my i7 Mac Mini has quad-core hyper-threading while the i5 iMac is clocked at a higher speed with a dedicated video card. Which machine is more suited for video cutting on FCPX? I tend to produce a fair bit of web videos. Should I pick up a new (base level) 27" iMac or just stick with my Mini?
