    I have a choice of 2 used iMacs to get:

    2013: (new body)
    3.2Ghz i5
    8GB Ram
    1TB
    Nvidia GeForce GT 755m
    Facetime HD


    or

    2011 (old body)
    2.93 Ghz i7
    16GB Ram
    1 TB
    ATI Radeon 5750


    Will be primarily for music production and video editing

    Well the 2013 will be better obviously. Are they both the same price as that would make a difference.

    2013 is $200 more and it's the slimmer body but only an i5

    Don't people say those 2011 iMacs run a little hot?

    I would think the 2013 would be the fastest... and since you are using it for video/music editing wouldn't faster be better? You can probably find MacWorld speedmark testing that would be helpful.
