I am thinking of getting a IMAC do i go for something like this
iMac 27 Late 2013 Core I5 3.4ghz 16GB GTX 775M External 240GB SSD £550. or something like this
Apple iMac A1418 21.5" 4K Desktop 3.1ghz 16GB 512GB SSD (October, 2015) A+ boxed £640 that would be my maximum.The 2015 one seems a better deal plus 12 m,w
Apple K.B Mice,12 M Wnty ,Top 4K Retina lastest Model
How do the two do compair?
NVIDIA GTX 775M v Intel Iris Pro 6200 graphics processor?
I was thinking of getting the latest Mac Mini but decided against it because of the SSD being soldier in .

A modern Mac Mini would be a better choice because of its processor and Thunderbolt 3 ports. The processor and hardware are both newer and better.

You can always attach a Thunderbolt 3 SSD for more storage and it’ll be as fast as internal. The iMac does have an upgradable SSD, but it’s not an easy procedure and there’s a risk of the screen falling off afterwards.
