Hi all, I have a 5 years old iMac 2.4 which it is now getting slower and slower in terms of photo process/editing and multi tasking several apps (with only 4gb memory and 256 graphic, I know it is very limited). Plus now I've been printing with my Canon Pixma so a new machine would make smooth workflow. I'm really interested to get newer mac if not brand new one. Should I wait the new iMac to be released next month or so? or should I get the current line? they said the new ones would be a retina display.
I also have macbook pro (2.53 model with 8gb memory and 512 graphic) but I don't use it for photo editing, as well the 15 inch screen is not enough. I was thinking if not getting new iMac I would get a monitor and I have in mind for Dell u2711 or u2410. I know my MBP is getting to it's life cycle but I believe this one should be good for another year or two. So with the current options I have, what do you guys think and recommend? budget to be honest I have up to $2.5K. Also I have this offer from my colleague of his iMac with 3.4ghz and 16gb memory and 2gb graphic for $1800 but the thing is it's out of warranty and with the same spec I could get from BH photo for $2400 new.
I really appreciate all the inputs and advise, have a nice weekend all!
