So I went to see the used iMac, but it just doesn't look as nice as I was told (scratches in the screen), so I have decided to just bite the bullet get a new iMac. I want this iMac for word processing, powerpoint, excel, web browsing (google docs), email and Skype (which I use extensively as I teach online), praat (sound viewing/editing tool), and a few games (mostly the sims, civilization and simcity - which i would prefer to run at at least medium settings). I want a 21.5" and I don't need/want retina (I'm pretty farsighted, I honestly can't see the difference). Since I play a few games, I was thinking a dedicated graphics card might be better? But maybe not? So the options are: last year's model with a 2.9 ghz processor, 8gb ram, 1 tb hard drive and a NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M graphics card http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product...583&path=4127ef0be36f82c301c26565f639a03cen02 Or this year's model, which I would probably configure to have a fusion drive (is it worth it with only 24gb of SSD? maybe a 2tb fusion drive then? or I could leave it as is, in which case it is actually cheaper than last year's model with education pricing): http://www.apple.com/ca_edu_93120/shop/buy-mac/imac?product=MK442LL/A&step=config Which is better? Thanks again for all of your help!
