Hi, My 2007 imac 24" 2.8 extreme seems to have died. I was jumping right to getting a refurb 2012 (1399) or 2013 (1549) 27" imac. I then started thinking why not a Mac Mini. I already have a Dell 21" monitor. I probably would pick up another 27" monitor (I saw a samsung at costco for like 279). Then I started to think of all the little things you need with a desktop, Web Cam, Speakers, Microphone (I have keyboard and mouse and trackpad from iMac already). While they are minimal, they can add up a bit and add clutter. Than I noticed there is no discrete Graphics on the Mac Mini. So say I find a I7 Mac Mini Refurbished (they are not there now), for like 679+Tax, update the RAM on my own, add a monitor, I am up over a grand now. I assume anymonitor I get for around $300, is not going to stack up to the 27" iMac monitor in terms of quality. The positive of the mini, if it dies, I only have to replace the box. I assume many have been down this road. Can someone help me decide?
