I ran the numbers for the iMac configuration I would order tomorrow, vs. a souped up Mac Mini that I could order instead. With everything thrown in the mix including upgrading processor+RAM, getting fusion, buying a monitor for the Mini... the difference is still about $450. Then I think, well, I could use those savings to get a thunderbolt drive and nice speakers etc. Things I couldn't afford if I buy the new iMac. I'm torn. We mostly use the desktop (currently a 2008 iMac) for everyday stuff, working from home, a handful of video editing projects over the year. Not much, but enough that makes me wonder/worry about the integrated graphics card on the Mini. Would I even notice a difference? I read this review and thought, maybe I'm over thinking the decision: http://www.parkablogs.com/content/review-mac-mini-2012-video-editing Maybe a Mini is enough for me? Note: I don't play ANY games. What would YOU do?
