comment For complicated mathematic calculations, are extra threads or high-speed disk access more important?
@Shinrai It's hard to say without more information about what the OP is considering, what the price range is, whether the OP already has a monitor, etc... The iMacs are pretty nice machines for the price, including nice displays, and all have quad core processors. But this computer is also for college use, which I think makes laptops attractive for taking it to the library, meeting with groups to work on projects, etc... Frequently even on laptops you can make use of the GPU to get additional (FAST) cores for specific types of calculations (with extra programming) from within Mathematica.
