I would seriously recommend saving up the three hundred dollars more to get the MBP pro 13 i7 8GB 750GB in stead.
AND I would recommend it over the iMac. The Dell is most probably a lot better screen than the one in the iMac for working at home anyway, and you get the portability of a 13" laptop.
Then rip out the (for most people) useless DVD-drive and plonk in a 120GB+ SSD drive to run the system on, just as you did with the old one. Then you'll be safe for a few years ahead. But I'd still have the 8GB memory version, if possible - but that's still easy to change yourself on the MBP2012
The step up in real working speed between the Core2Duo and the new Ivy Bridge architecture is remarkable, in any soft that can harness it (this includes almost all graphics softs).
