    Hey, I am looking to buy a refurbished imac and i have to choose between 2.9GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 + 1TB Fusion Drive or 3.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 + 1TB HHD. Both are the same price what would be better to buy?

    Thanks.

    Without knowing your needs it's impossible to say, however unless you are doing very CPU intensive work the Fusion drive machine.

    No-one should buy a Mac without at least a Fusion drive nowadays...

    If you're doing CPU intensive tasks, neither.

    CPU intensive tasks requires an i7, but never ever buy an iMac with a HDD.
