We are on our second iMac, but I really wanted to go the mini route last time. Unfortunately, the mini was too out-dated at the time. My issue is that I’d prefer to upgrade the computer more often than I do, and if it was just the cost of the mini, that would be easier. But there’s a large sunk cost in the screen that you have to replace each time with the iMac. So I’d rather get a nice monitor that would easily last through 2 or 3 minis. Then I could swap the mini out every few years instead of making the iMac last 6+ years - where the last few years it is really showing it’s age.
