PC User Looking for Information


I am a PC user having never owned a Mac product although I bought my lady an iPad 2 which I also like when I can get to try it.

She now uses my Gateway Laptop so I am in need of a new Laptop as well but I am interested in replacing my desktop computer that uses an i7 processor.

I pickd up a virus on my Desktop and lost photos etc which I hadn't backed up as I usually do however my computer just doesn't seem the same since.

I use a Nec PA 271W monitor that is calibrated and because I love this monitor and have more than $1400.00 invested in it plus a sound bar.

I can not buy an iMAC unless I sell it for a loss and nor do I want a Mac Pro at my age so I am looking into a Mac Mini however they are older Intel Processors.

I have read that the Mac Mini may be updated this year in July so I would wait and see what developes but as of now I am not even sure it is something I would want to replace my desktop.

Looking for information by those with Mac Mini knowledge and whether or not they would be able to replace my desktop computer as I run it with 12 GBs memory 3 HDs and Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom 4.1 in software applications.

Any sound advise would be appreciated, I am not in any hurry other than I'm old and would like to make my move this year.
Thanks, Pops
