    I need a Mac that's stronger than an iMac but not as small/compact/expensive. Something that can run an i5 that doesn't come with the glamourus screen but will have a decent video processor.

    Like a Mac Mini+ or something...:)

    Am I the only one who feels there is a voide between the desktops?

    That's why there's the Mac Pro. You either buy it, or you save the money to buy it.

    The Mac Pro's Xeon processors are far from i5.

    The ever elusive "xMac" as it is sometimes called. Apple refuses to make one, unfortunate for many who may prefer iMac-like specs in a tower form factor.

    They have made Mac mini with discrete GPUs on again off again in the past. search for a used or refurb 2011 Mac mini. The upgraded model could be had with and i5 or i7, Thunderbolt and an ATI GPU.

    Good tip. And for the above poster, I can't afford a Mac Pro. I can barely afford the nicer iMac's :( I might have to give up something small to afford it, like smoking, or kids...yeah I'll give up kids/.
