Hi guys
I decided to purchase an iMac since my old macbook pro is dead.
I dont think i need 27 inch, so i was thinking between 21.5 inch with either 3.0GHz or 3.4GHz.
I will be producing and recording mostly with logic and does it make any huge difference depend on what i chose from those two?
Would i have no problem running the program with just 3.0GHz one ?
I am so scared of getting any kind of bumps or slowing down experience, ive had that enough with old book pro already.
I uploaded screenshots to show all the spec.

Thanks for your time and kindness

Don't focus too much on the CPU. Rather make sure you order enough RAM and a fast storage solution. SSD is MUCH preferred, but you will want at least the fusion offering. There are several other threads here about iMac storage that should help you decide.
