I am currently thinking about setting up a small recording setup. I have plenty of experience with PA systems, but will just be learning the recording side, but I want to make sure I get the right kit. Having Macs at work (and a MBP at home), I definitely want to base my setup around a Mac of some sort but I'm unsure which way to go. I don't really have a budget in mind but bearing in mind I need to buy the whole setup, I've boiled my choices down to the following: 1. 21.5" 2.7GHz iMac 2. 2.5GHz Mac Mini with 27" Display (probably a Dell Ultrasharp). Both will end up costing about the same but I'm not sure whether the quad core in the iMac will prove useful over the dual core in the Mac Mini, plus the Mac Mini has a smaller drive, etc. Any advice would be very much appreciated.
