My thoughts are that the Mac mini is a very worthy but still entry-level piece of equipment for those wishing to switch to Mac without having to discard existing useable peripherals such as screens, keyboards etc.
The iMac screen is WQHD, Wide Quad High Definition or 1440p and with some decent screen calibration equipment and software you will be able to make it 'sing' whilst rendering your photographs to print and web page almost exactly as they appear on your screen. You will of course have everything (apart from your back -up equipment) integrated.
For me, it would be the iMac...but then I'm biased
There is nothing wrong if you go the 'separates' route.
