Has anyone an idea about which of the following two price equal options might be faster for video editing (and would it be noticable)? and can anyone see additional advantages or disadvantages? (1) Quad-core mini (i7 standard), base $799 dyi do-able SSD upgrade Corsair 256SSD + $250 dyi easy ram upgrade to 16MB + $114 Asus ML239H 23' monitor (well reviewed) + 170 Total: $1350 Advantages: Faster computer (?); more future proof with update-able SSD; bigger monitor; firewire 800; more versatile (as home entertainment system); and a bonus 1 TB drive which I can externalise. Disadvantages: Monitor performance / resolution may not be as good as iMac; I will be banished to post in the mini rumours. (2) iMac (i5 standard) 1TB 5600 (slow HD) 4MB non-upgradable ram 21' monitor Total: $1300 Advantages: Faster computer (?); nice design; I've wanted one for a long time; ... (there must be more) Disadvantages: Can't upgrade RAM or SSD (get the machine I really want) without massive expense; not yet available; possible issues with heat; slower HDs than previous model.
