    I think I need more RAM. Advice?

    I've been using my Mac mini (stock late 2012 model) as my sole desktop machine since June of last year and I love this workhorse of a computer. However, I design a lot of artwork in GIMP and Pixelmator and have noticed that this machine slows down quite a bit when working with artwork projects that creep up on 1 GB in size.

    Current specs:
    Model: Mac mini (Late 2012, stock)
    Processor: 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory: 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4000 1024 MB
    Display: LG 23-inch (1920 x 1080)

    What I would like to do is to buy a 27" iMac, but I need some advice as to which model/configuration to buy. Until I am able to make such a purchase, what can I do with this Mac mini right now in order to speed things up a bit?

    iMac advice? Advice for my current Mac mini?
