    Just curious how much "real" difference there is between these 2 machines performance wise. I like the idea of the 27" screen size. They are priced almost the same on the Apple refurb site.

    Thanks!

    Personally I would go with the 2011 21.5. It will support the future OSX versions longer. The 2011 will be most likely be updated till 2016 versus 2015 with the 2010.
