    I'm not best to advise on the brand new model, but SSD portion on fusion is still feeble (32gb vs 28gb on previous version, vs 128 GB SSD in the older models apparently?) Also not sure if RAM is upgradeable. Sorry I can't help personally but just flagging up stuff that you can search here or that other more informed members might be able to help you with.

    Wait until people like ifixit actually start to get there hands on these units.

    As they tend to do a tear down then will find out what they are like and what can do with them.

    I would suspect that the 21" still soldered on RAM as the 21" iMac previously gone soldered so not user upgradeable. Can't see Apple stepping back from that. Should also find out the SSD size in the Fusion Drives as well.

    With respect, your response seems to move the goal posts from your original question. I'm sure that the 4K display will be stunning, it's just a question of how you use it and how capable your chosen spec is capable of driving it. Sorry to be salty, don't take it personally, I've realised that it has been a typical bad Monday, so carry on with your research & questions and I hope that you find the right iMac for you!

    Cheers
