    I'm looking to purchase an Imac 21.5 so I can do a lot of video editing mainly with Final Cut Pro. Should I get the base model with the Nvidia Geforce 9400m or the ATI radeon HD 4670? Is there that much of a difference? if so what's the difference? help please.:confused:

    For video editing I would definitely go with anything other than the 9400m as it's not even a dedicated GPU. So yes, go with an ATi option.

    I see a couple refurbished 21.5 inch imacs with the 4670, both going for around 150usd less than store price. You should hit them up!

    The refirb model is really nice, as it comes with the faster cpu (the 3.33, with its extra memory cash, gives a boost to programs like FCP) and larger hard drive. Not a bad deal.
