This is a joke right? "Oh, they're close to the same price..." yeah if you included the $900 apple monitor and other accessories. The mac mini is a fine computer for audio production. With the money you save, you can get some great studio equipment you can use to actually make music. No one is saying the iMac isn't impressive, it is. However, the barrier to entry for this uber-cool core i7 is much more expensive than a mac mini which will easily handle the processing tasks of 99% of DAW users.
