Buying new iMac mainly for Logic Studio Pro - help needed!

I am brand new to this forum and need some advice.
I am planning on buying a brand new iMac with the following specs:
2.5GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
1920 x 1080 resolution (21.5 inch screen)
4GB (two 2GB) memory
500GB hard drive
AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB
It is the entry level iMac model and I plan to run Logic Studio Pro 9 on it. The question is, does this have enough tech for Logic to run smoothly? Is this iMac fairly future proof?
Will I be wasting my money if I upgrade to an i7 CPU and/or 8GB or RAM? Can you add extra RAM at a later date if necessary? Is 500GB big enough for a hard-drive?
Huge thanks for any help given!

That mac should be fine, I would add more RAM but buy and install it yourself, extra RAM from Apple comes at a premium price and it is much cheaper to source your own RAM upgrade from Crucial or Other World ComputingMember of the Month September 2008 & August 2012 | Found advice useful? – use the rep system
