    Which new iMac? Advice please

    Hi

    I need to purchase 4 more iMacs for additional edit suites asap.

    We currently use 21" iMac 14,3s [3.1Ghz i7] with a Dell 1080p bin monitor and BM mini- monitor connected to a Toshiba client monitor. We use ISIS 5500 and most  work is HD or 2K ProRes or Proxy resolution, currently running MC8.6.1

    I know I want 256 SSDs and 16GB RAM minimum.

    I'm looking at  the 3.6GHz i7 processor and 4K retina model, with either Radeon Pro 550 [2GB VRAM ] or 560 [4GB VRAM].

    Am iIbetter spending on more RAM [32GB] or more VRAM?

    Is any of this approved by Avid yet? 

    Thanks for any info/guidance

    Nigel
