I'm considering purchasing a new iMac because I understand that it offers 64-bit processing and rendering of Premier Pro files efficiently. Is this so, and if so, which configuration would be best?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

    You ask Mac Pro tower owners, you'll find tower offers more options.

    Core i7 4-core @ highest MHz along with 8-16GB RAM, SSD boot drive.

    unfortunately i'm on a real shoestring budget. I did find this apple-refurbed unit. except for beefing up the memory, would this unit handle moderate PP editing work?

    Refurbished iMac 27-inch 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
    27-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display
    4GB memory
    1TB hard drive
    8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics with 512MB memory

    Thanks,
