So here's the situation. I have approx. 1000-1200$ spending money for a new iMac. I'm into video editing and picture editing, mainly video however. CD drives are useless to me. I have the option of a late 2009 27" iMac, the ones that don't include a Thunderbolt port. 8GB ram with 2.66 i5 processor. Vs.... The new late 2012 iMacs, but in 21.5". So far, I see the pros of the new iMac as: USB 3.0 Better screen (in terms of viewing angle and slightly less glare.) Faster (How fast is a question I have still) And I believe they don't get as hot. What do you guys think I should do? Is a 4 year old processor too obsolete? It's a 2009 model afterall.
