Replacing our family computer (a 2009 MBP 17", which died when the RAM controller on the motherboard bit the dust. Lasted 6.5 years, not bad.). I'm deciding between replacing with a near-maxed out iMac 27" 5K (4 GHz quad core i7, 1 TB SSD) for ~$3k or a maxed out Mac Mini (3 GHz dual core i7, 1 TB SSD) for ~$2k. The main reason I'm even considering the iMac is because I have a bunch of HD home videos sitting on a hard drive that I have been waiting to edit because our old mac didn't have the horsepower to do video editing without frustratingly having spinning beachballs and otherwise being slow. I'm interested in future-proofing as much as I can here, and enabling fast processing for editing our HD home videos, and of course our gargantuan (500GB) Photos library. So, at issue: would the Mac Mini be sufficient for that kind of home movie (iMovie, not FCP) video editing? I'm leaning toward the iMac since I figure that machine will serve our needs for longer than the Mac Mini would. But curious what you all think?
