Not really, as only you can judge the extent to which the specifications match your requirements and budget.
But bear in mind that the new iMacs are not user-upgradeable once purchased. What you order is what you will be stuck with!

I think the question really is what you hope you can achieve, that you can't achieve with what you have. Klaus1's observation of the new model not being upgradeable is very important.
There is a huge current thread No DVD drive in new iMac ???: Apple Support Communitie and this is not too complimentary. Might be worth reading and would certainly justify waiting six months to see what develops.
OK let me try and outline my needs. I'm a 3D hobbyist (Modo) and use the Adove Creative Suite a fair bit. Aperture is also an app I use a lot. No DVD drive is no concern to me. Can't remember the last time I put a disk in my mac.
Klaus1, the 27" iMac is not completely cut off from user upgradeability. It comes standard with 8GB of RAM, but can be upgraded by users to as much as 32GB. Unlike the 21" model, there are "four user-accessible SO-DIMM slots."
Aside from RAM, you are correct.
