I have a late 2011 MBP, that I invested $2000 in only to have it failing because of a defective logic board. I hate to pay Apple to fix my computer on my dime because of a manufacturers defect and it will not totally fix my problem. They will just use the same defective product to fix it and it will just prolong the problem. So now I was almost decided on getting an Mac Mini but was waiting on the update. The update wasn't really that great to say the least, but I've waited to long to by a left over 2012 mac mini. I can't find one anywhere with a quad core processor. So I've been looking at the base model iMac 27". I'm fulling invested in Apple at this point, 3 iPads, 6 iPods, 2 apple tv's, 3 iPhones, TBD and one half way stable MBP. I don't do any thing real intensive other than edit HD video every once it a while (go pro), but I don't want a snail when I do that, i.e. new 2 core mini's. Any suggestions, frustrated with Apple at this point about this MBP. Thanks.
