Should I get a Mac Mini or an iMac?

Episode 990 (2:27:27)

Carl from Las Vegas, NV

Carl is looking to upgrade his Mac Mini. Should he get a new Mac Mini or go with an iMac? Leo says that it's really a wash. The iMac would give him a big screen, but he's paying for it. The screens that Apple sells are better, but he can get a similar LCD for cheaper. If he's happy with the Mini, he should get a new Mini. Will the iMac be upgrading soon? Leo says probably really soon. Maybe in the next month or two. So it could be a good idea to wait.

Mac Mini's are an amazing deal though, and if he already has a monitor, then why not? He should look at the new Mac Mini. He'll pay for the elegance of the iMac, not the capability.
