Hello. I am considering purchasing a new iMac to use primarily for recording music. This will be my first computer I've ever bought for this purpose. I have almost everything picked out that I want in the computer, but I'm wondering: are there any other music producers on here who can comment on i5 processor performance versus that of i7 as far as recording and producing goes? Is it worth spending some more money getting an i7 for recording, or will an i5 do just fine? I'm still learning the technical aspects of modern processors (my last machine is an '01 model) but I like second opinions on these things. Initially I will be doing some small acoustic stuff but I also play with friends so I want the machine to be able to handle it if we do any full band type stuff. Many thanks.
