Not considering the 2012 iMac because the 21.5" has user-inaccessible RAM, not to mention 5400rpm HD. I am guessing upgrading from 8 to 16GB will cost $100-200 at Apple. I just ordered 2x8GB for $50 shipped.

I hadn't realised they gone down to a 5400rpm disk as standard - disappointing.

I am aware of the Fusion Drive but I think a separate/second SSD drive is a better and not to mention cheaper option. Plus I was looking at only the base 21.5 2012; if I wanted fusion, I'd now have to go up to at least the second level 2012 21.5", and I just don't think it's worth the money.

Fair enough.  I'm interested to see what the reviews say about the new iMac, but mine's still relatively new so I've no plans to upgrade.

From everything I've read, I think I'm going to go with the mid tier 2012 mini, 2.3 i7.

It would be interesting to hear your experiences here when you get it.  Good luck!
