Should I get a 2012 iMac or a 2011 iMac?

I have been looking at the new 21.5" iMacs. But I have been told that they are actually worse than the old 21.5" iMacs. What are your opinions and is the new one worth it? Are the specs any worse? or better?

NOTE: I am a high school student working a part time job so price is a big factor. I do a little video editing. I work with photoshop doing some photo editing.

  • Hello,
    I noticed you said you do some video editing. I just bought the 27" iMac and I love it but it does not come with iDVD. If you want to burn DVD's research your options before you buy.
