What kind of data will you be working with? Genomic DNA resequencing? RNA-seq for gene-expression profiling? RNA-seq for de novo transcriptome assembly?

16 GB memory will be a bit limiting. If you have RNA-seq data from a vertebrate and you want to use STAR, you'll need twice that much.

The i5 isn't anything to brag about either, but all that means is it might take longer to do things you're already not waiting for in real time anyway.
