I've always been a fan of the iMac. I LOVE the new thinner Optical-less design...and since my G5 iMac has gone to that big motherboard in the sky....it's time to update. However, I am torn. Should I get one of the new iMacs? Or a cinema display combined with a Mac mini or Mac laptop? Since the new iMacs won't be available until next month, I have time to ponder this question. I mainly edit hd videos and photos, with some animation and design work. As much as i love my ipad for when i travel, I definitely want the big 27" display at home to do this stuff on. I definitely am lusting after one of the new iMacs....but am thinking that an apple cinema display with the Mac mini or laptop might be a better future proofing set up....especially since the iMacs are becoming less upgradable with the thinner design. Hoping they announce new cinema displays in the new thinner design soon. Also...how long do you think before Apple comes out with a retina display iMac or cinema display? Rumor had it thats what was taking the iMac update so long....that they were working on it. Maybe they couldn't make the deadline, so they released these new iMacs as a stop gap, and plan to release a retina iMac next year? I dunno. I know it's pointless to play the waiting game...but if Apple plans to release retina iMacs this Spring, I'd be willing to wait. Thoughts?
