Look at a 2011 i7 27". They're barely different spec wise from the current lineup. Not great for adobe though. Oddly the low end one you describe might have an approved adobe card, but I think it's supposed to be a gig.

The 2011 has other pluses. FW800 and a built in DVD burner. No USB 3 though. USB 3 is a powerhouse. I can edit HD off cheap little 1 TB 5200rpm drives from Costco, or use a $15 adapter cable to hook up my esata Graid. I also have a mirrored newer tech guardian Maximus usb3 mirrored raid hooked up just for backup and even as a mirrored usb3 raid it gets 170mb/sec.
