New iMac Build Tags: Prebuilt Systems Last response: March 28, 2012 9:28 AM in Systems Share reissue March 27, 2012 5:39:01 PM Currently lookint at the 21.5" models At what point is the 2.8 Ghz i7 worth the money over the 2.7 Ghz i5? Is it better to spend my money on an SSD with 4GB of Ram or 8GB of ram and a normal HDD? My uses will include itunes for music, iphoto for home pictures, storing home movies, converting VHS home movies to digital copies, maybe some pro logic, Diablo III/Starcraft 2 More about : imac build mabreatsh March 28, 2012 9:28:02 AM for your uses, I believe the 2.7 should suffice, SSD is much better, just buy an external drive for your movies and all that. 4gb is enough for what you plan to do. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
