    I'm looking to pick up a used iMac that has both thunderbolt and firewire. I think the mid-2011 version is the one, but maybe I'm missing something newer?

    I'll be doing Final Cut Pro X editing, and also have a question whether the AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 512MB (standard in the mid-2011 i5) would be adequate.

    GVA, KUL, MEL (current), ZQN
    Only the mid-2011s have both FW and TB.

    Since you're doing video, the i7 will be much better suited to your needs as video editing, encoding and rendering will take advantage of hyper threading in the i7.

    Thanks! I'm going for a newer one, 2012 and I'll get a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter.
