Advice: Config for 27" iMac
Just sold my 4 year old mac pro today. I have been out of the mac game for awhile but am planning on getting a 27" iMac and I would REALLY appreciate the advice of those more knowledgeable than I on configuring it.
Objective: Most bang for the buck configuration. A computer that will last me at least 3 years and be able to do everything listed below with speed.
Work: Document writing, spreadsheets, powerpoints, Android development.
Fun: Media such as web browsing, youtube, netflix watching and light gaming (think plants vs zombies, the walking dead etc.)
Low end 27" or high end 27" Fusion drive..yes or no? I would prefer a SSD but am wondering if it is user replaceable. Is a processor upgrade worth it? Or is that $$ better spent on Fusion drive?
Is Ram user replaceable or do I need to upgrade?
Do I need a graphics card with 1GB RAM?
IMPORTANT: I have a 27"Apple display that uses mini display port. Will I be able to pair this with the imac for dual screen set up?
