Yes, it's another one of those threads. I've read through most of the others for the last 2-3 weeks, and I've gotten some of my questions answered. I just have a few more and I'm hoping some of you with more iMac experience than I have can point me in the right direction. First, if I make this purchase, it will be my first iMac. I've been weighing the options since last fall. Currently, I'm working on a 2017 MBP 3.1 256. Aside from school, it was my first foray into MacOS, and I love it! No more Windows for this girl! Plus, I love how it works with my iPad and iPhone and other iDevices. (Preaching to the choir, I'm sure.) Aside from general media consumption, most of which I do on my IPP, I teach online part-time. It's mostly journalism or oral comm, depending on the college. When I teach Oral Comm, I watch their uploaded videos and grade them. I'm guessing pretty much any machine that I buy would be able to handle this. (Currently, I'm casting the video to my Apple TV and grading on the MBP; a 27 inch would be a game changer!) Other than work, I do a lot of writing and research; I tend to have a lot of browsers open at any one time. I don't do any video editing or play games, though I occasionally will do some light photo editing. So my question is, what would be best? The collegiate discount helps, but these machines are still crazy expensive. I was looking at the 2019 27 3.7 i5 with 512 SSD. Then I noticed Best Buy is having a sale with $400-500 off the 2017 models. I could get a 27 3.5 i5 for $1499 and upgrade the RAM myself. Or rather, since 1T is the lowest storage capacity, I could go with the 27 3.8 i5 with 2TB Fusion Drive for $1799. I know that it's quad-core instead of 6 or 6+ core, but coming from the dual-core on my MBP, would I notice the difference? Would one of these iMacs work for the next 3-4 years, or would the newest one be so much better that's it worth the extra $$? Finally, is there another option that would be better suited for me that I'm overlooking? I appreciate any thoughts you might have. Thank you in advance!
