Entryl level iMac 2012 and Photoshop

I am planning on purchasing the base model iMac with 16gb ram when it comes available. I will only be using this machine for photoshop cs6 work.

What I will be using this computer for:
10x8 canvas digital painting with Wacom, often intensive layer work and using mostly jpeg files. I also plan to write to an external HDD. Averagel size of my images is around 4000 pixels.....around 2.5 mb.

Does this sound workable to those who are familiar with PS cs6?
This will be a new software upgrade for me so I am unfamiliar with the actual demands it may put on a system.

I don't work with video or RAW, and won't be using this system for web or any other apps, but I am still concerned about the 5400rpm drive. Do you think this is workable?
(please excuse typo in thread title!)
