    What iMac to purchase for After Effects animations

    telkins@bladv.com

      Hello. I'm currently shopping for an iMac to do 4-7 minute animations in After Effects. They are relatively simple, and may include some video.

       

      That said, I need to know what iMac I should consider purchasing. Considering I won't be doing any overly complicated animation, which should I go with?

       

      Here are the choices I've narrowed it down to:

       

      Refurbished 27-inch iMac

      3.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i5

       

      8GB memory

      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX with 1GB

       

      -------------------------------

       

      Refurbished 27-inch iMac

      3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7


       

      8GB memory

      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX with 2GB

       

      -------------------------------

       

      27-inch: 3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with turbo boost up to 3.8GHz

       

      16GB memory

      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M with 4GB

       

       

       

      Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks in advance for your advice!
