    Well, Apple makes a fine monitor, but if you would be comfortable with a computer that costs around the same amount, I'd just go with one of the iMacs that's about the same price. You can get a lower end iMac for around the same price as a Thunderbolt Display.

    What do you mean by saying that the Mini doesn't do 3D? The iMac definitely has a much, much better graphics card, as far as gaming and rendering is concerned, but the Mini should be able to handle some light 3D work. If you're talking about a 3D screen, though, I don't think Apple offers anything like that.

    He means it doesn't have a dedicated graphics card, like the Nvidia, just the basic Intel 4000 graphics.

    Just FYI there is no 2013 iMac at this point. I think you (OP) mean late 2012 iMac.
