I'm looking at buying a new iMac and am really torn between what specs to go for. Prior to thinking about it I had a 27" in mind but now I have actually considered that 21.5" I'm from Australia so I get slugged with big Apple prices I am however in my last semester of University and will get a education discount. My budget is at a max of about $2800. I was looking at the 27" with upgrade on the Processor and Fusion Drive. 3.5GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2X4GB 1TB Fusion Drive NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M 2GB GDDR5 This puts the price at my max of A$ 2,769.00 I would very much like to go all out on the 27" but what occurred to me as a cheaper option would be go with the 21.5". Which would have: 3.1GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM -2X8GB 1TB Fusion Drive NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 1GB GDDR5 This could cost A$ 2,389.00 (This is with everything, processor, RAM and Fusion Drive upgraded.) I am really unsure what is the best option. I will use it for video editing and I rarely game making me think the graphics card isn't vitally important, but I'm not sure how good each one is for gaming should I want to. What adds to the dilemma is the current shipping times. The later option 21.5" model is currently showing 2-3 weeks while the 27" is 5-7 days. Hadn't this been the case I probably would have ordered the 21.5" model already. Part of me thinks if I'm going to get the 27" I should bight the bullet and fork out $400 and have it future proof plus I'll get it sooner but at the same time I don't want to spend more than I need to. The 21.5" may suit my needs fine and then I'm a few dollars richer, further down the track if I need more power I can upgrade then, when funds allow. Should I bite the bullet and just be patient. Also I have a 2nd screen I will be connecting up that is a 21.5" Any help please?
