    Newbie who cant decide
    Morning all,

    I've been using dreaded windows for a lot of years now and have made the decision to move to mac. An imac to be precise. I do a lot of photo editing etc which i shoot in RAW.

    I have two im looking at im guessing one is last years and one this years. However one has discount and one doesnt. I can stretch to both but is it worth it.

    Here they are Argos - www.argos.co.uk

    Thanks for all your input.

    Steve

    Looks like you need to put the individual links up. The comparison link is not working.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    The newer iMac has Thunderbolt, the older one does not.

    This is not a big deal now, but it will be in the future.

    The new iMacs are also far and away much faster than the 2010 versions from everything that I've read. The Sandy Bridge processors are a huge improvement from 2010 CoreiX series CPUs

    Just my 2 cents on this i always have a hard time buying older computer equipment if the computer in question is going to be my main computer of use. now if you had said this compter is mainly going to be used for word processing and a little internet surfing I'd tell you to save the money but you being into photo editing i would opt for the newer machine so your not starting out so far behind the tech curve.

    I'd definitely recommend going with the 2011. Like others have mentioned, it has the Thunderbolt technology. Hopefully, eventually, this will be a faster way to transfer your data and it will be reasonably priced. I'm one who tends to go with the latest and greatest though.

    Go for the 2011........no doubt about it if you have the cash.....

    To be honest, I am totally opposite to Amanda in the fact that I always go for the slightly older and cheaper models.....

    But when it comes to someone else's cash.....then get the best.....
