    i just order imac 21,5 late 15 1,6ghz with 16gb ram and 256ram.
    What you think should i take higher prosessor also, it cost 300€ more.
    Imac comes to handling photos to time capsule, and web browsing, mail, basic photo editing, maybe little gameing, boot camp, youtube...

    Just basic use

    The base model should be fine, though I'd opt to get at the very least a 2TB Fusion drive over the very slow 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive.

    The 1.6 Ghz CPU quite a bit slower than the 2.8 Ghz CPU. Now, for basic stuff maybe this isn't a problem. But for the "little gaming", it's quite the difference. The base CPU uses a 6000 HD; the 2.8 Ghz uses a Iris Pro 6200.
