I am looking at replacing my aging 2008 uMBP 15 with a 21.5" iMac and a 32GB iPad 2 WiFi. I want to have something light and ultra thin and super super portable, along with a beast for power use back in my room.
I am looking at a refurbished 3.2 Core i3 4GB 5750 iMac, for 1269. Seems like a pretty good deal as a new one is about 1500-ish, and its price-performance seems to be a nice ratio.
I just wanted your advice, as to whether a) is that good enough for video editing and other movie work (seems like it), and also, should I wait for the new ones? Because it seems to be high time for a refresh, with the macbook pros out and Spring being new mac season usually.
If so, how long until the new ones? The person that wants to buy my macbook pro says she will wait around 2 weeks only!
