    The wife wants one for her photography business

    Are we mad?

    Our reasons for not going iMac: -
    1. The launch date has slipped, I worry that it's quality problems and maybe something fundamentally with the design, so reliability might be an issue
    2. If reliability is an issue, they are sealed units, so it's back to apple for repairs
    3. They are sealed units! All you can access it the ram slots on the 27"
    4. New screen tech and there have been problems with the retina MacBook pro screens

    Macmini: -
    1. It needs to run aperture well and I believe apertture needs a decent gpu

    So purely for aperture, (iTunes etc is on the macmini server) is this wise?

    We reached tipping point with the current setup long ago, so not waiting for a possible new pro
