    Hi everyone
    Just wanting an opinion on the following:

    I am debating between a refurb 2011 Mac mini server with 2.0 i7, 256gb ssd and 750hdd combined with a refurb Thunderbolt Display

    AND

    A 2012 27" base imac (i5) with the 1tb fusion drive.

    I do recording (music) and watch videos in HD primarily as well as light tasks.

    I guess the debate is do I get last years i7 with SSD+HD or this year's i5 with fusion. The Mac mini+TBD (refurb) price out to about the same as the imac with fusion upgrade.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Why the server mini?
    i think the mini w/ssd will be fusion via the software
    An updated tb display might come out when updated mac pro arrives in 2013

    Just my thoughts
