Currently not able to afford new iMac so thinking to buy used iMac. Config as below.
Apple iMac “Core i5” 2.7 27-Inch (Mid-2011)
“Core i5” 2.7 27-Inch Aluminum (Mid-2011) is powered by a Quad Core 2.7 GHz Intel “Core i5” I5-2500S (Sandy Bridge) processor with a dedicated 256k level 2 cache for each core and a 6 MB shared level 3 cache. In lieu of a system bus, it has a “Direct Media Interface” (DMI) that “connects between the processor and chipset” at 5 GT/s.
Appreciate your suggestion. Please

Sorry, I think I have wrongly posted a query. I mean whether above config is sufficient to run the Graphic Design tools? Since I am not so technical person I am not sure, hence this query.

That mac will be more than enough man. I have the same but the 21 inch screen and it runs like a charm.

That only applies for old iMacs from 2012. Check out the iMac buyers Guide. There can be a new release soon -> http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/#iMac

Not a bad idea if you are a designer, go for it. If you are a coder than you can have other options available in a very less price
