I'm glad to read that Apple has finally addressed the graphics issues with the release of 10.8.3 ML for Mini. I would like to make sure the fix is really working when connected thru HDMI.

 

 

I'm thinking of getting a maxed out Mac Mini Late 2012 or a maxed out iMac 27 inch Late 2012.

 

 

I'm no-gamer but would be heavily using either one for DV/HD editing (including 1080 60p footage from my Panasonic TM90). Can the Core i7 2.6 quad core along with the Intel 4000 GPU on the Mac Mini handle the HD editing tasks natively with live no stuttering previews on the monitor?. I also have a Canon GL1 DV camcorder that I need to transfer footage. The camcorder comes with Firewire 400 but the mini comes with Firewire 800. Does it work out of the box for video transfers or I have to get a adapter to downgrade to Firewire 400?.

 

 

For the work I'm trying to do, is the mini route the best bang for the buck or iMac 27 inch would be better suited for my work?.

 

 

What about the internal speakers? I would be playing off some titles thru the speakers. Does these speakers deliver good sound?.

 

 

Finally, what is the best 27 inch monitor with IPS display?. I'm planning to get one along with Mini.

 

 

Thanks.
