I'm looking at getting a new iMac for my parents who are in their late 60s. This will be replacing a 2008 20" iMac. They mainly use it for internet, photos, word processing, and managing their old school e-readers. I did a quick check and their current hard drive is 250gb and they are only using half of the space. A few questions I'm wondering. I could probably get them the entry level non-retina 1.6GHz Processor version with the 1TB 5400rpm hard drive and it would still seem like a crazy upgrade compared to what they are using. Still, I feel like that computer at $1,099 is an absurd ripoff and it is worth a little money to get a much better computer. I think 8gb of RAM will be plenty so my main decisions are coming down to retina vs. non-retina and 1TB regular, 1TB Fusion vs. 256gb flash. It is hard to decide if it is worth spending 1,699 for the retina with 256gb flash for them when I know anything new will feel great. Do you think they would appreciate the retina version or for older customers that don't really know any different do you think I should save the $200? With respect to the hard drive, other than booting up the computer would everything feel faster if I get the flash hard drive? I know that people hate the 1TB Fusion due to the small SSD but do people feel it is a big upgrade from the 5400rpm drive? Anybody who has any thoughts or experience in this area with advice, please let me know. Thanks.
