First, thanks for the consise reply. I wasn't sure if my post was worded correctly. Clearly you faced a similar dilemma and understood exactly what I was asking.

Yes the Lacie 321 is older, around 2005. It has a tendency to slow down my current 15" MBP and and was much worse on my old 2006 15' MBP but I'd guess that it could be used on a Mac Mini.

I had no idea about a wider gamut on the new iMacs. Our 2008 24" is too bright and constrasty for accurate calibration. My guess is that if I go the new iMac route that my older 2009 blue eye pro won't work well on the new iMac monitor.

I have no idea about that.

One thing I didn't mention is that I also do audio voice over work and computer noise can be an issue. Any thoughts between fan noise Mac Mini and iMac?

Most times I don't notice my current model iMacs fan running and I have checked it on a number of occasions to be sure it was even running as it was that quiet, but of course that depends on how much of a load you are putting on the computer and for how long. It has never sped up when processing my photos.

The current model Mac mini (I had the 2.3 i7 version) is essentially silent and stayed that way even when I was using it to process my photos in Lightroom. The only way I could hear the fan was to put my head to the rear of the mini, just like my 2010 Mac mini. I don't think you can find a quieter computer on the market with that combination of small size and power. The fact that you can also position the mini much further away than you would an iMac would make fan noise even less of an issue. It's an awesome little computer.
