What computer/monitor is best for a beginner photo editor?
Nov 16, 2012

I am a beginner photographer and have just begun learning how to photo edit (using Adobe Photoshop). I have a Canon Rebel. Most of my photos are of landscapes from travel or candid shots from events I host. I will be buying a new computer and monitor and am looking for advice. Which of the following options would be best for someone like me? I added some of my own comments. Put more simply, I suppose this is an iMac vs PC question. Thank you.

Old iMac: $1099. Con is you get about half the memory and hard drive space as a new Dell, HP, and iMac.http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Apple%AE+-+21.5%22+iMac%AE+-+4GB+Memory+-+500GB+Hard+Drive/2658077.p?id=1218343209949&skuId=2658077

New iMac: $1300 starting. Ship date unknown. Cannot order now.http://www.apple.com/imac/features/
