best value mac 2017 under 600-1000

im an 18yo guy who hates windows, im could really push my budget and get an early retina 15in, or save a bit of cash and go with a none retina and hook it up to my dell 1920-1200 screen. are these macs still fast enough for photo/video editing?.

there going to be slower than the latest and greatest, but i just don't want any glitching/freezing/tearing/spinning retard stuff.

i ask this because it seems my parents i3 21in mid 2011 imac is slowing suspiciously with every osx update. how long could i expect ether of thees machines to last?

also how reliable are the retinas? ive always been a diy tinker replacing any failed parts myself. it seems more difficult with all the proprietary  parts in the retina.
