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.

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.
