Hello everybody, this is my first time posting to the forums but I have been following the site and the forums for a number of years. I have been wanting to purchase a Mac now for about 1 1/2 years but every time something has stopped me. I've been borrowing a family members several times and really like it, but I can't figure out which one I really want. Finally, I think I've narrowed it down to either a Mac Mini with dual Dell displays or the base line 27" iMac. With the Mac Mini I seem to spend a little less money for more stuff. I also have the added benefit of portability if I ever needed to take it anywhere(not a huge issue I don't think). With the iMac I get a lot more computing power and the price step up is very minimal and I can add on more as I get more money(ram, etc). However there seem to be some issues like the glossy screen, my desk is situated right over a diffused skylight, and I was playing with it it seemed that the back got really warm under even light loads. This really bothers me because the last time I put a large screen in my room, it raised the temperature considerably. I'm not a real power user all your basic stuff, web, photos, email, docs. I would like to get into IOS Development as well. Any help would be great. Thanks.
