    Cool 512mb video card, is it enough?
    As a photography company, I am considering an Imac. I'm not sure if I need to go to the 27 inch monitor with the 1gig video card. The 21 inch imac doesn't come with a 1 gig video card. So, at this point, I'm not sure.

    The apple guys at the store couldn't give me an answer either way. The dude at 1800 Apple said I should buy the 27.

    I would appreciate any advice, will the 21 inch quad core with 512 mb video card be enough for heavy photo editing, or should I get a prostitution job on the side to pay for the 27 inch?

    Thank you in advance.

    Specs:
    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    512MB should be fine. More than that is only really useful for gaming.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
