Hi guys, first post so hey all! So I'm going to be leaving University soon and was wanting to use my student discount on an iMac before I leave for a future job. My interests are in Web Design with some graphics design using Photoshop and Fireworks w/ Illustrator. Because I am tech savvy, I ideally want a beefed up machine and want something future proofed I can do low/mid-ranged gaming on but also allows me to still use the machine if say I decide I want to go into Games Development or Graphics. I have a large budget to spend but want to spend as little as that and get the best value for money. I have listed the models I am considering below. I have bolded the main differences. RAM is something I am going to upgrade myself as this is a considerably cheaper option. I firstly looked into model MK472B (Mid-tiered 27" iMac) the specs are: 3.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz 8GB (two 4GB) memory, configurable up to 32GB 1TB Fusion Drive AMD Radeon R9 M390 with 2GB video memory Retina 5K 5120x2880 P3 display £1,407.60 I then looked at model MK482B (Top-end 27" iMac) the specs are: 3.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz 8GB (two 4GB) memory, configurable up to 32GB 2TB Fusion Drive AMD Radeon R9 M395 with 2GB video memory Retina 5K 5120x2880 P3 display £1,627.20 Regardless which model I'm going for, the 2TB Fusion Drive is going to be on the agenda and will be put in due to the 128GB of Flash Storage, so that is a definite upgrade. Using my discount, there's a £220.40 difference between them but adding in the 2TB Fusion Drive on the first model brings it to around £1,548 or there abouts. Now here's my dilemma. Do I simply just buy the top-end model or do I save my money and use the money I saved to add in the i7 upgrade to the first model? Essentially, giving me a boost altogether with CPU. With the i7 upgrade this brings the mid-tiered 27" iMac with 2TB fusion drive to £1,759.20. The other question was then, is there a significant upgrade between the M390 and the M395? Utilising the upgraded CPU but keeping the GPU the same could prove inefficient, no? Would it be worth missing out on the m395 for a nice beefy i7?
