    My current iMac is a an early 2009 24" model and has always performed well (upgraded RAM a coupe of years ago). However since Yosemite it has become quite sluggish so I was thinking of buying a new 21.5" Mac, but was disappointed that there was no upgrades tihs year. I cannot justify the £2000 for a retina display.

    Is it still worth purchasing the 21.5 2.7Ghz iMac, or should we soldier on until next autumn hoping for an upgrade. We mainly use it for web-browsing, basic photo editing and the odd spreadsheet

    might as well wait for the Retina which most likely will be announced the next keynote

    My parents were using an older 24" iMac that I wanted to upgrade for them. The 24" was a great size, I got them at 21.5" and immediately realized it was way small. My mother (who can barely turn the thing on) even commented on how small it felt. I then returned it and got them a 27"... it is much better, but maybe just a TAD big. The 24" was truly a great size.
