Fast forward to 2022 ... Apple's base models solely exist to be able to claim 'Prices start at $xxxx', Apple continues to use this strategy, cheating people on RAM and storage (they took three years too many to finally get rid of their cheap to procure spinning hard drives!) Maybe one day all Macs will have no less than the RAM and storage needed for a great user experience (IMO Today's minimum should be 16GB of RAM and 512GB drives) ... especially since on chip RAM is vastly cheaper to make ... and users can no longer upgrade it!
Max ram and larger drivers are the best way to future proof your investment but Apple made that more difficult by forcing you to pay them instead of pay as you go.
If you spec all the imacs (they all come with 8gb ram) to 16gb ram and 512gb drive, this is what the prices look like.
NEW IMAC w/less ports $1,700
NEW IMAC $1,900
IMAC 27in i5 $2,200
IMAC 27 i7 $2,500
IMAC 27 i9 $2,900
New iMacs on sale are a good deal for now but you are better off selling it after the next model comes out and getting the newer model than keeping a machine with base specs long term now that its impossible to upgrade the internals.
