I am looking to replace my mac mini and considering a refurbished 27" 2.66 quad core i5 or a brand new 3.2 i3.

The computer will be used mostly for photos and converting videos with handbrake.

thanks

I think the i5 would be a much better machine for what you want with it being quad core, video encoding with handbrake would be significantly faster than the i3 I would think!
