I recently converted to Mac with a macbookpro. Now my wife is jealous and is looking to upgrade her desktop. She needs it for the usual net/emails but also needs to be able to do some graphic design - her current pc (which is only 2 years old) is clogging up despite numerous defrags, reg cleans etc, making working with photoshop traumatic. Budget is ideally around the £1000 but would splash out a bit more if SSD is really going to speed the system. Narrowed it down to these 4 systems MAC MINI 2.3 dual i5 8gb 750gb 7200rpm £889 MAC MINI 2.5 dual i5 8gb 750gb 7200rpm £979 MAC MINI 2.5 dual i5 8gb 256gb SSD £1339 IMAC 2.5 quad i5 8gb 500gb 7200rpm £1159 Getting an Imac quad with an SSD is out of budget. clearly the bottom 2 are the best bet. I guess my question is... is an IMAC quad with standard HD a better option than a MAC MINI dual core with SSD? I'm a first time poster, but would really appreciate your advice! Cheers.
