Hi guys, I'm new to the whole Mac scene and am just looking to dip my feet into the water and get some opinions/facts. After many years of resisting the temptation I've finally decided to jump ship and buy my first iMac (in fact, my first Apple product!). I want to start producing video content for a small independent project I'm working on. Nothing massively intensive, mainly three or four minute game video reviews/previews etc. I used iMacs/Final Cut Express throughout my time at university and believe it's the best option for me (particularly in my price range). I have a rough idea of what I want. It'll definitely be 21.5 inch base model (I'm poor sadly), but I'm torn between the 2011 model and the recently announced and soon to be released 2012 model. The 2011 iMac comes with a potentially useful optical drive, faster HDD and can be upgraded. However the 2012 model boasts a faster CPU, bigger HDD and a better graphics card. I suppose my question is, will the slower RPM in the newer unit impact my editing and if so, is it worth the trade off for the slightly better machine? I know it isn't the most powerful machine in the world (far from it) but I think both would serve my needs. Anyone got any thoughts, something I haven't thought about etc.? I'd appreciate any responses and thank you for taking the time to read my post. Cheers, Nick PS I'd upgrade the older model to 8GB so they'll both have the same RAM and cost about the same amount.
