The new iMacs have desktop i5's not mobile so they are quad core. The most I've ever seen logic use is two cores.

It also does not take advantage of a GPU so the faster video would not benefit it either

Curious, as the Apple Logic Pro site mentions this:

I'm using logic with the 2.9 and its prefect for it.

The graphics card(gtx660m) for the 2.9 base model has CUDA for helping with CPU calculations.

I've a line 6 pod connected for guitar/bass work, a microphone for my vocals, and my electronic drum kit and have not had any issues with logic on my system at all.

the i5 2.9 its eought ?
Sounds to me you really want the imac but just get the id get the i7 regardless. I still think the mini represents the best value for this purpose because gpu is unimportant for audio

interesting, thanks for the link. I was speaking strictly from my own experience but perhaps (likely) I have not done the most heavy duty stuff with it since my stuff tends to be 6-8 tracks.

Likewise, 10 tracks probably is the most I've used on one song
