Can an iMac handle Adobe CS Next and Resolve?
I'm looking to purchase my very first Apple computer to pair with a workstation PC. I would have loved to max out the iMac specifications (i7, GT 680, etc.) but unfortunately, in my country, I don't have that choice.

I'm looking to get the 27" iMac, and the best specs available are:

3.2 GHz i5
8 GB RAM (Thankfully upgradable)
1 TB 7,200 rpm (not fusion)

It will cost me $2,500 due to taxes and for whatever reason.

I'm getting a CS creative cloud license, FCP-X and Resolve (full version), and the PC workstation will lift the heavy load. The iMac is 'because I need an Apple product'. All other Apple options, like the Macbook pro, etc., are unreasonable and unpractical for my use.

My question is: Can this iMac run Adobe CS6 and Resolve smoothly? I will not be using it for production or mission critical work, but would like to test both on this machine for various reasons. I'm not looking for intensive work, but the software should run okay, even if it is slightly on the slower side. I'll be running 1080p and 2K footage mainly.

If anybody has been successful with this iMac version I'd appreciate your experiences. Thanks.

No one with an i5 iMac on Resolve? Even if you've just tinkered with it I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Adobe CC and Resolve 9 works fine on the iMac i5 GTX 675MX version.
