Just wanted to get some input. I currently am still using my PowerBook G4 from 2006 and it is starting to really show its age. I'm a grad music student and I need to upgrade very soon before this beast finally hits the dirt. My budget is right around $1000 and I need a computer that can handle the uses of every day life for me - running Sibelius (music notation software), and some light picture editing with PS. So really not too much heavy use... So here's the deal: I didn't see a refurbished iMac in my price range (I need one with a Superdrive) and I purchased a New Mac Mini with 8GB RAM plus a Superdrive, keyboard... (I picked up a good monitor from Best Buy, but that is also returnable) I chatted with a rep over at Apple and they said that I can return the Mac Mini with accessories within 15 days of when I pick it up - I haven't picked it up from "site to store" yet. Ergo if I buy the REFURB iMac and also ship "site to store" I can walk in and pick up the iMac while I "return" the Mac Mini and receive a full refund. What's the better option? NEW Mac Mini 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 8GB memory 500GB hard drive1 Intel HD Graphics 4000 OS X Mountain Lion OR REFURB iMac 2011 21.5-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display 4GB memory 500GB hard drive 8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics with 512MB memory Built-in FaceTime HD camera Thanks for the insight. tl;dr Which is better the New Mac Mini or the Refurb iMac 2011?
