    I'm set on upgrading to one of the new iMacs but have a limited budget. I'm a photographer and primarily use Lightroom and Photoshop. If I have to choose, which of those configurations would offer better performance?

    Many thanks,
    Adam

    I would go with the i5 with the 4gb of ram because it is alot easier to upgrade the ram than the cpu :D

    You can buy another 4GB of ram for $100 from OWC.
