Hi all! So some might have read- I had to cancel my original iMac purchase because it was just too expensive to my needs. But now I am back on track but am still on a budget that is going to constrict me not to go past $2500-2700 including tax. (I do get an Education discount that is great). I've boiled it down to this----- Top Tier 27 iMac with 2TB Fusion Drive or Entry-Level 27 iMac with 512 SSD I am ALSO getting Final Cut Pro X ! So excited- with the Education bundle, I get 5 apps including another compressor and 3D graphics. So this is why I was wondering if the top-tier would make a difference. HOWEVER I right now, am just editing in 1080P. I am not yet in the 4K editing world (and won't be for at least another year). Does the Mid-Tier make much difference in graphic performance then the entry level? I am transitioning from a entry-level 21.5 iMac from late 2009. So the speed will be great regardless. I also decided not to upgrade to an i7 processor, based on my work load (and yeah those heat complaints). Suggestions? I Do want SSD, but 512 still seems skimpy. Ideas? PS- I saved my 32GB of Ballistix Sport RAM which I will be installing for a total of 40GB.
