Switching from PC to Mac - Specs??

Hey guys,
I'm finally making the switch from PC to MAC after many years and was after some advice.

Do I really need the latest whizz bang i7 for music production? Money's a little tight right now and I'm tossing up options.

Have you noticed much of a difference working with an i5?

Also RAM wise, do you think 8 GB or 16 GB?

I used to work on a i7 pc with 16gb of RAM but I think it might have been a bit of overkill.

I use a lot of Ableton native FX with the occasional VST (prefer to render to audio even when I do)

Do you reckon I could get away with an i5?
