    I am looking to purchase an iMac with my tax refund and was wondering which one I should purchase. I am going to be using it graduate school, with some graphics and photo work. I am also going to install bootcamp for some gaming that won't be able to be played on a Mac. Any combos suggested would be welcomed.

    What's your budget?

    Are you looking for the 21" iMac, 4k, or the 5k model?

    Looking at the 5K model since that gives me a dedicated graphics card

    Good decision; I'll soon order the following model:

    i5, GPU: m395, 256 GB SSD. I don't want to have a hard disk and it's still possible to add an external SSD (I'll take the Samsung Evo 850).

    The m395 is, following the barefeet-test, the best of the GPUs with 2 GB. I don't want the version with 4 GB because I won't need it and it seems to get hotter (which is not good for the machine's life span).
