iMac Mini or Mac 21.5

I bought a Mac Mini a month ago. I love it. The only gripe I have is I wished I had a better monitor. But, that’s not the Mac mini’s fault. Lately, I have been thinking about swapping my Mac Mini with the new, cool, sleek, 21 inch iMac. How is that possible? There’s a holiday promotional right now from October 27 until January 7. Any computers bought within this window can be returned or exchanged. Typically, it’s only a two week return policy.

So, I’m debating whether to swap units. The Mac mini that I bought actually has a faster processor than the low end iMac. The Mac mini has a 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, while the iMac runs on the 2.7Ghz Intel Core i5 processor. As far as upgrades, the Mac Mini is a lot easier to mod. You can add easily more memory, a second hard drive or SSD to the unit without much of a hassle. The iMac is not so easy.¬†Obviously, the best feature of the 2012 iMac is the screen and the skinny form factor. The only downside with my Mac mini setup is, I need a better monitor.
