Getting new Mac but which?

Hi everyone!

Looking to get a new Mac but not sure which one to get. I'm going to be using FCPX and Motion (maybe aftereffects) so what would be the best set up I've got about 1500 to spend.

Max mini 2.6i7 fusion drive & 16G ram.
Base 21" imac + 16g ram
21" iMac with 2.9i5 / fusion drive + 16g ram
21" iMac with 3.1i7 / 16g ram NO fusion drive.
Base 27" no upgrades

How important is a fusion or is it just a luxury extra? Never had ssd so would I miss it?
The more money I can save the better but I don't wont to miss something out if it will really add a good benefit to the system.
Or are there any other configurations I've missed.

Any thoughts would be great!!!!
