I am new to this forum as I am new to iMac, I just know that I will get one as the rest of my digital world is Apple already and I am 100% satisfied. I am only struggling what to order. Here is my starting point: currently, I am running a 5 year old budget windows pc which is about to die in the near future. I am doing basic computer stuff (emails, web, documents/ spread sheets) and I recently started to do photography. All photo work is on hobby level but still using lightroom and Photoshop. I considered to go for the iMac 5k, but for whatever reason I do not have a good feeling, even though I could afford it, also maxed out. I just want to avoid doing beta-testing for Apple. So my current take is to go for a late 2013, 27". What do you think, would the 1.999 basic config + 3TB FD meet my needs? I don't want to oversize (I typically do not tend to waste my money), but I also want some decent performance. And how about the difference to the iMac 5k? Would it be disappointing not to go for it, considering where I'm coming from? Thanks for your help, guys!
