Hello all, Sorry for another one of these kind of threads. I've been thinking of upgrading my 2011 27" iMac for a while now and some stores in the UK have some good deals on the 2019 models at the minute, one where you can get around £330 off any of the 27" models. Not interested in the 21.5" models due to screen real estate. Of course, buying from resellers means no customization options, so I'm after some advice please. I've always bought the top of the range model of any Mac, mainly for the longevity and because I liked to do a bit of gaming now and again. However, I've got a dedicated gaming PC for that side of things now and would only be using the iMac for general home use (browsing, email, few photos/videos, etc) as well as some music recording/mixing. Even then, that would only be Garage Band and my Axe Fx 3, certainly nothing professional. I do quite a lot of switching between apps like Garage Band, Axe Edit, etc. My biggest storage requirement is for music and recordings, but that's still only around 250GB I would say. I'm not big on photos/videos, so no big storage needed there and like I say, no games. With the offers, I can get the three 27" 2019 models for £1419, £1650 and £1920. I think the base model would do me in terms of performance, but my biggest concern is the 1Tb Fusion drive and it's teeny SSD section. I think the 1Tb would probably be enough in terms of space. So I either pay the extra £500 to get the top model (with the 2Tb Fusion drive) or get an external SSD (£100 for 500GB). It doesn't bother me having an external drive, and I'm thinking that's probably the way to go, but would appreciate everyones thoughts/opinions. A few other random thoughts - Is there much difference in terms of longevity between the three models? - Are there any disadvantages with external SSDs apart from the speed? - For my needs, do I need any more than the 570x as a GPU? - Any savings would be good to go towards a new set of studio monitors. Thanks very much in advance for any help.
