As I'm currently selling my 24" Cinema Display, I've gone back and forth from the iMac to a Mac Mini + a 27" Thunderbolt Display (the original reason why I decided to sell my ACD). I just need some opinions as most of the time I forget some important things I should consider. Keep in mind I opt for the next-gen quad-core Mini, which should be on par with the current Mac Mini Server, while the iMac isn't expected to get huge performance gain through Ivy Bridge. Cost: 1800 for the Mini + TBD + SSD + 16GB RAM (street price) 1600 for iMac 27" Core i5 2,7 GHz, Radeon HD 6770 + 16GB RAM (street) Pros of the iMac: - More overall power with MUCH more graphics power - 200 cheaper - All-in-One - quieter fans - 2 Thunderbolt-Ports Pros of the Mini + TBD: - SSD - easier replaceable while keeping the display - better resell value if needed - better design (imho) - no keyboard and mouse included (already have one) I know that many of the points at the Mini configuration are heavily subjective, but if you consider the SSD it's actually not that much more expensive and it should be fast enough for 1080p video editing in FCP X as well as slight gaming on full resolution (Starcraft 2, Diablo 3). What do you think? What have I forgot? Thanks for your feedback!
