(except as a replacement for an iMac) as soon as the next generation of Minis comes out, which should be quite soon.

The only thing that I disagree with is that I think only 8 gigs of RAM is necessary; this is based on a recent (MacWorld?) article showing that going from 8 to 16 is negligible as far as performance and value. It you were to go to 16, I'd suggest doing it via a third-party supplier to save some money.

Update: Forgot something - definitely get the Fusion drive, as Baselite pointed out.

Thanks all for your great information and suggestions so far.

Yes, it seems the Fusion drive is the way to go. Getting that suggestion from others as well.

Surprisingly, the Apple Expert suggested a non-Apple source on-line for the 16GB kit, which would save me about $150, or more.

All around, this seems to be a good, much less expensive option to a new Macbook Pro. My wallet will be happy.
