    I'm looking to get a new iMac, one of the 21.5 in models, but am curious if the extra boost in processor speed is worth the extra $$. I am looking to do some light photo/video editing, rip dvd's to hdd, and play light games (star craft 2 mainly). Thanks a lot for your advice

    Also, are these tasks reasonable for a 13 in mb pro. The mobility would be nice unless it just kills the performance. Thanks again!

    I posted the benchmarks earlier today if you do a search you can see them. But there is about a %10 percent difference in performance. I would get the high end 21.5 more for the HD and the GPU than the processor.
