I have a 2013 27" 3.2GHz i5 Quad Core iMac w/ 24GB RAM and a 256GB SSD. I have no intention of running a machine without an SSD. I am considering selling the iMac and getting an LG 34" 3440x1440 Ultrawide display and a Mac Mini so that the Mac Mini can do what the iMac does most of the time - act as an iTunes server and iPhoto repository. I use my iMac for a lot of web browsing, most of which can be done on my iPhone, the kids iPad or my MacBook Air. I use it for iPhoto/now Photos but not really that much and a lot for Mail. Basic home computing but no real productivity. I also connect via TeamViewer to my Windows box at work for working at home some nights. But the primary use is the connected iTunes media drive that houses all our music and movies that we either stream to an Apple TV or sync to our devices. So my plan would be to hook the Mac Mini up as well as a cable for my wife's work laptop to the LG display, so that either could use the display. The Mini could still serve up all the music and movies and I could use it for mail, surfing etc. when she doesn't need it. She works from home a lot more than I do. If she is on the screen, I can still use my MBA to remote screen share into the Mini from the couch to access Photos or iTunes or something. I can get Mail straight on the Air of course. My big question is given the light load I have on the iMac now, will I regret getting rid of the nice iMac for the Mini or will I even notice the difference? And would I be better off with a 2014 Mini or a 2012 model? I would probably get the 2.8GHz 16GB 256GB SSD 2014 since it not upgradable. Thanks for the feedback.
