Hi Guys,

I'm looking to buy my first Mac and was looking at the IMac, mainly for music production. I can't really spend more than £1000 and was wondering what your suggestions were on these options...
Either I buy the new IMac with the following specs:

21.5-inch: 2.5GHz
2.5GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
1920 x 1080 resolution
4GB (two 2GB) memory
500GB hard drive1
AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB

or a refurbished iMac 21.5-inch 3.06GHz Intel Core i3 processor which is a bit cheaper:

Originally released July 2010
21.5-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display
4GB memory
500GB hard drive
8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics with 256MB memory
Built-in iSight camera

Which would offer best performance and experience? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

QUOTE Thanks
