    Do yourself a favour and upgrade the HDD. If you just want a new desktop to use then the specs will be fine for the average use. However please don't get the 1TB HDD alone. Speeds will be significantly slow and won't feel like an upgrade.

    Here's a review for you to watch.

    Upgrade the harddisk drive to SSD. The effect will be night and day. You won't feel the difference between the CPUs but you can definitely feel a significant improvement for the SSD upgrade.

    Are you talking about the cheapest 21.5" model ? My sister has the 21.5" model with i5 (2013 model) and the 1T 5400 RPM HDD is painfully slow compared to my 1 TB fusion drive (5K Late 2014).

    I guess the 1 TB fusion drive comes with a 24 GB SSD like the 27" iMac, so pay an extra $100 for a 256 GB SSD. More than enough. If not, buy a USB 3.0 external HDD.
