    I looking at getting this iMac and wasn't sure if I should get it since the iMacs haven't been updated since 2013, except the 27 inch iMac. My current Mac is a 2010 MacBook Pro and its starting to slow down a lot.

    Here are my needs if anyone has any other recommendations...
    Normal internet usage
    I play a lot of modded Minecraft
    Running Windows XP in Parallels for Game Maker Studio
    The odd game on Steam

    So would this be a good computer that would last me at least 3 year? Or should I look for something else or wait for the new iMacs?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am in exactly the same spot as you are. My cMBP mid 2010 is dying and I really need a new Mac but I can't justify buying a new Mac that hasn't been updated for over a year. Though, the iMac you linked is more then enough for the things you want to do with it. But I'm sticking around and probably wait for the newer models.
