I was all set to buy a mac mini and hook it up to a TFT (not sure which one yet) but then I started looking at the imac G5. Now, I know that the mini and the imac are different beasts, but either would do what I want, but what about the screen? Is there a difference between the imac screen and other TFT screens? The imac costs more than the mini and a 17inch TFT but is it worth the extra cost? And what about the life of the imac screen? Any ideas?
