I need some advice quick. My mom is coming to town today and wants to go buy a new computer. She is debating between an iMac and a mini. She only needs to use a browser, email and word processing. She also wants to ability to create slideshows using photos and music and burn them to DVD. I am unsure if the mini can handle the slideshow creation without overtaxing the system. Also, she probably needs a new monitor her current one is about 8 years old. The mini costs $599 and a 20" cinema display is $599. That is $1200 which is the same price as a 24" imac. I guess she could buy a cheaper monitor somewhere else but Im just not sure she would be saving all that much. Do you think she out to go ahead and splurge for the imac 24"? PS I also own the new Imac 24" and love it.
