At 12 years old, the iMac may have been a capable machine in its time, but it's not worth putting any money into it.

A 2010 Mac Pro isn't much of an upgrade, really. Pass it by.

You want something new or at least Apple-refurbished.

I'd say nothing less than a 2017 iMac.
Or perhaps a 2019.
2020 would be better (SSDs are standard).
And then there's the new 24" with the m1 CPU. If you get the 24", MAKE SURE you get the "4-port version", not the one with only 2 ports on the back.

Or...
A Mac Mini.
Either a 2018 model, with an Intel CPU and SSD
or
A 2020 model with the m1 -- MAKE SURE you get 16gb of RAM.

If you're going to "upgrade", then GET a real upgrade...
