    Default imac or mac mini for my needs.

    I am very tempted to buy a Mac Mini as my main everyday desktop, but I was thinking is it good at the following Or Should I go for the imac.

    -Web Browsing
    -Running Virtual Machines (Windows and Linux guests)
    -Programming (Ios and android app programming)
    -Gaming (Fifa 12 and Gta San Andreas)

    Will the Base model of the mac mini suffice for me or Should i go for the pro version.

    I think you you might want to consider a iMac. You can buy them pretty cheap (refurbished) on the Apple website. You will probably spend 300-400 more on an iMac, but it will be a lot more handy to use than trying to find a monitor etc. for a mac mini. I think either would work, just depends on how much money you have to spend! iMac is def better though.
