new late 2015 imac 27" or 2015 imac 27"

i may be looking to upgrade my 27" mid 2011 imac to a 27" 5k display. Is the newly released 2015 27" imac really worth it compared to if I buy a refurb 2014/2015 5K?

Faster processors and graphics. But Hobbled Fusion Drive if you're going that route. late-2015 iMacs 1TB Fusion Drives only include 24GB of Flash. The early 2015/2014 5K iMacs with 1TB Fusion Drive included 128GB of Flash.

The 2TB Fusion Drives have the 128GB paired SSD. But really, the best option is the pure SSD one. No mechanical, no Fusion.
