I've been considering getting an iMac lately. I don't do much that's very CPU intensive, some video and phot work but nothing professional grade, at least now and I've been trying to decide on which config would be best for me. The $1099 option is an absolute no go for me. So I've been looking at the middle of the road config ($1299) with a fusion drive. I didn't check to see what a RAM cost from Apple would be because Apple is notorious for charging quite a premium for more RAM as opposed to buying it afterwards and installing it manually. Because I've been shopping in the education store where everything is a bit cheaper, including upgrades, going from 8 to 16gb of ram is only $180 compared to buying 16 ram on Amazon for about $140. It's $40 more yeah, but I don't have to go through the tedious process of installing it. Think it's worth it?
