i have a 15" macbook pro that will be 2 years old in december. i finally moved into an apartment with an office and my own desk. im thinking about buying a desktop to use in conjunction with my macbook pro that i use on a semi-daily basis at work. i do light editing and designing with photoshop, illustrator and some work in dreamweaver also some dvd burning, movie conversion (for my iphone as well as for dvds). i just need something that i could store all my music and movies on and plug in a drive to that to do a weekly backup as well as all the stuff i listed above, instead of using my mbp while at home. between using my mbp and something else, i figure a mini would do fine. problem is, after i buy the mini, a monitor (probably a dell widescreen), keyboard and mouse, its almost the same price as an imac. should i just go for the imac over the mini? especially now that the mini might be phased out?
