So, the time has come for change after all these years of being on Windows. I am really fed up with it and i don't want to discuss it further I need advice. I was seeking for a couple of months a combination that suits me in apple universe but haven't found it. I was considering buying a Mac mini i7,8GB RAM, some SSD and HDD (double drives) which would cost me about 700 euros(960USD) where i live but found myself thinking. What i mean is that i needed to buy a monitor and apple keyboard and mouse and all that combined would be around 1000EUR(1370USD). Monitor i was interested in was Asus MX279H, where i would also like to get advice about 1080p resolution on 27", is it bad, should i go with mx239h,23" one?. ...and for that price i can buy MacBook Pro 13" base model mid 2012 which is more portable but lacks power of i7 Mac mini. Have you guys ever found that MacBook Pro is lacking power for editing videos, running photoshop etc? Should i go with MacBook + monitor(i need monitor no mather what) or cheaper and stronger mac mini + monitor. One important thing! I do not want iMac because i need separate monitor which i can use for any device and it is incredibly expensive here in europe, base version surpases price of buffed Mac mini for a 500USD I need to know you people who do simillar job as me, would you go with Mac mini or can MacBook do the intensive job all day long in years to come?
