OK - get out your crystal balls - just found some "free" money at work that I can use for a new computer for home and very inclined towards the Mac Mini with dual monitors. That money needs to be spent before December 3 - so although I'd love to get the Mini now, I can certainly be patient until then... keeping my fingers crossed for a new Mini before then. It will be replacing my 5-year-old iMac with multiple attached HD's for media/backup, so am thinking of going with the 1TB fusion drive instead of the 256GB SSD - but before then I'm going to do everything I can to remove unnecessary files from the iMac HD and see how much space I can free up... going pure SSD would be my goal (did this on my MacBook Pro via OWC and it's like a new computer!) So, great Kreskin - how likely is it that the Mac Mini will see an update before December?? Second question - *very* much like the idea of a dual 23" or 27" monitor setup, as I'd be using it mostly for Aperture and Photoshop work. I don't have the money (or inclination) to buy 2 Apple monitors...which leaves the field wide open - Dell? HP? Nixeus? I'm not a photo professional, so perfect color calibration is not a critical component to my workflow. Ideas?
