I will be making the permanent move from PC to Mac in the next few months. I know the desktops are (allegedly) due for an update soon, so I will keep that in mind as well. I will be using the computer for school (word processing, PowerPoint), web browsing, and iTunes. I already have a Magic Mouse, keyboard, and monitor. However, if I go with the Mini I will want to get a better monitor. My question is mostly about the processors. I would be getting the base model of each except for the mini. Any advice on which would be best would be great. Thanks!
