Re: iMac question for Nikon D800 files help needed

I recommend going with the 17 processor.  those big images can use the extra horsepower.

I did some testing on my Macbook Pro,  and 8GB Ram seems to be sufficient, for pretty large images - test with a 780MB panoramic composite and didn't use all the ram.  go with the 16GB ram on the 21.5 since it is pretty difficult to upgrade later.   Ram in the 27 can be upgraded at any time,  and cheaply.

as to permanent storage.  take a look at bare feats.com benchmark of HD vs Fusion vs SSD.   fusion looks very nice for the $$.
