I like the best, but probably do not use any where the capability of these riMacs. I drool and am jealous of those buying them. I think of my 2012 Mini with the Quad Core i7 as such an antique now. Probably don't use that to it's capability. But, being a geek, I must have the new riMac. Oh, working man here, pockets do have bottoms! Question is, order with the i7, 4GB Vid and 512 SSD or just grab a base one. I surf, rip and handbrake Blu-Ray video (only the ones I own of course), some Aperture and NIK plug ins. May do a little hiDef video but strictly family stuff. I wonder, being a geek, if I would regret the base over the upgrades. But, it is wise to bump everything up from stock. It's a good chunk of change to do so. What say you fellow geeks that use typically 20-40% of any systems capability but think you need 110% of the max config?
