Uses; Web browsing. Intense homework - i like to have to programs (word and chrome) open at once to maximize effeciency. YouTube. Casual light gaming. Sketchup Movies. Possible options - Budget must be within absolute maximum - pushing it $2300 21.5'' iMac - high end - 1tb fusion - $2000 21.5'' iMac - low end - 1tb fusion - $1729 23/24'' monitor and a macbook air (11 or 13'' baseline 128gb) - $1700 (11'') - $1900 (13'') Above (23/24'' monitor) with a 13'' rmbp baseline - $2100 Above (23/24'' monitor) with a mac mini (i7, 1tb fusion drive, 8gb ram) - $1800 27'' baseline iMac with fusion drive - $2300 I dont necessarily need a laptop, as i dont really benefit from having them and using it regularly, but for the odd occasion it is nice to have. I feel as if the 21.5'' imac is too small, but for my needs the 27'' is too big considering the depth of my desk and im not a fan of having to move my head to reach each corner of the screen - so 24'' is ideal but im willing to give this up for a smaller. I like the iMac's because of the design and the all in one concept - includes mouse, keyboard etc, less cords etc. What do you guys think is the best option - im really finding it hard to choose. Also - all models will be haswell 2013 models. Also - the more i spend on this setup the less i can spend on a new phone - expensive computer = iphone 5c/5 vicer versa.
