halfmonkey is on a distinguished road

So now that the refreshed iMacs are out, I'm interested in pulling the trigger and getting one and have most likely decided to not wait for Lion since it's a software update that can be done later (at an additonal cost of course.)

My question is about a recommended configuration. I primarily will be using it to browse, edit and manage photos, and edit and manage HD camorder material of the family. I'm thinking of getting the 21.5" with 2 tb and 8 gb ram. I'm thinking of just sticking with the 2.7 GHz i5 chip instead of upgrading to 2.8 GHz i7 chip.

Please provide your thoughts on this config.

On a side note, I'm not sure yet if I will also buy Aperture 3 and Final Cut Express 4 or buy Adobe Premiere and Element. If anybody has any experience of opinion on this, I would certianly appreciate yopur feedback as well.

Thanks in advance all.
