I'm trying to decide wether to get an iMac or Mac mini to replace my early 2008 MacBook Pro. I was hoping someone could clear some things up about the Mac mini, because I've not given it much attention until now. I would probably get the 2.6 i7 processor, (I'm a musician and a lot of synths are very CPU heavy), but I'm not sure if the Mac mini uses a mobile or underclocked version? How they compare to the processors in the new iMacs, is an i7 always better than an i5, even when the i5 is 2.9GHz and the i7 2.6GHz? How easy is it to mess around on the insides? I'll probably go with the 1TB fusion drive for ease, but I would buy 16GB of RAM elsewhere. I know iFixit sells a kit to open it up or something. Finally, are there any go-to displays? Probably at least 21 inch, and preferably ok looking.
