Thanks for all the input and advice. I'm feeling better about buying my friends iMac. However I'm still curious if there will be a noticeable performance difference between an iMac with a i5 processor and an iMac with a i7 processor. Will the virtual 8 core processing with less RAM and a less powerful video card still be faster than a i5 processor with more RAM and the 780M 4GB video card plus the 3TB Fusion drive or will the RAM and card and Fusion drive make things feel equal. I know it's probably not a black and white issue and it depends on what your doing on the computer but I'm curious in terms of the overall working experience.
