Need new home computer
My only home computer died, it is not worthwhile to repair so I am shopping for new one(s).
Spending some hours in an Apple store, I have my eyes on
Option A: combination of
(1) 21.5 inch iMac, 2.7 GHZ quad-core Intel Core i5, 8GB (two 4 GB memory), 1TB hard drive, Intel Iris Pro Graphics.
I don't play games, and am not into heavy development activities. What I will do would be basic stuff such as web surfing, emails, spreadsheets, documents, semi-serious photo shooting and editing, doing researches, web site authoring and maintenance..etc.
(2) iPAD Air, 32 GB
I plan to use it for books, magazines, web search, emails, light pc work while I am not home. I plan to carry it on trips, for movies, music, books on the airplane, some light pc work with a portable key board.
13 inch MACBook Pro with 2.4 GHz and Retina Display, 256 or 512 GB storage for trips. At home, I would hook it with two large monitors as a desktop.
I plan to keep the computer for 5-7 years. I am not too concerned about learning curve switching from Window to Apple family.
Are these two options overkill? Am I over thinking? Which of the two options is good? Are there any alternatives?
Please help me making the decision, I really miss having my own computer.
Thank you in advance.
