New IMac for Editing
Tossing this question out here, since I'm a little unsure of where to go.
Looking at getting a new iMac to edit on (with probably some light aftereffect/motion work as well) and I can't decide if the 21.5'' i7/16gb/Fusion drive with the GT-750M would be okay, or if I should look at a refurbished 27''. I can get a refurb 27 with an i7/8gb/ fusion drive/ GTX-680M for around the same price, and I can throw 32gb of ram in myself. I'm just a little hesitant on buying a refurbished product, but the smaller, less powerful gpu in the 21.5 gives me pause, since render times will be worse using the 21.5 with final cut x or premiere.
Any Thoughts or personal experiences?
