Not amazing specs, but if you're an apple fanboy and not using it for anything intense should be fine.

Would you recommend spending extra for the 4k model ??

This is a great machine - but a couple of years old and with only a Full HD display. For around £100 more, you can get a current, 4K-display version so if funds allow, do that.

The screen is so tiny that 1080p doesn't seem an issue. I'd be more concerned about having such a small screen personally.
If you can afford it and are using it for something which needs power behind it. Pay for the 5k, upgrade the RAM yourself which is easily done and apple actually give instructions on how to do it with a little panel in the back. It's much more difficult to upgrade the ram on the 21.5 inch displays and not encouraged. I'd also change to SSD over that fusion drive. Only problem is that'll cost about 1.8k roughly and you're stuck with i5 as if I'm not mistaken apple only allow an upgrade between i5 and i9 now which is over £400 of a difference.

Fusion is not bad, but plain hdd is terrible. Less than 8g of ram not functional.
5400rpm drive on a £1k+ device. I'm not going to entertain this further.
low spec and small screen thats whys the price is less.
Look, I've never been a fan of fruit based technology. Apples and Blackberrys, not my thing. I just don't get why people are paying these silly amounts of money for such a spec. I know it's the old build your own or buy one argument, but you could put together a PC of a similar spec for £300-£350. Monitors of that size will go for £20 on ebay or facebook groups.

It's cold from me, not because it's fruit based, but that spec is nowhere near deserving of that price tag.

You could put together a noisy old box with cheap components but not inside the monitor case. That is where the money goes. Miniaturisation costs. Maybe something like a higher end NUC with Thunderbolt ports is closer to the mark but then you are starting to get closer to iMac prices without the style, OS or support.

Having had an iMac, AIOs are definitely not my thing but there is a market for these things and there are Windows based equivalents, most of which aren't really any cheaper.
