Neither MacOS or windows will allow you to install to an external drive for booting because of the BIOS / EFI startup stuff and safeguards against system damage.

On Mac you can get around it (at least you used to be able to) if you take an internal drive with MacOS installed and pop it in external casing. On windows there's tools to do it that require an available windows workstation.

IMO, its way less effort to swap out the internal drive
I think that's not true...I've been (and others) using Mac OS on an external SSD for years.

Huge bezels make this a hard to buy in the 2020. Why are Apple deals always on obsolete hardware?

Not really, you just need an EFI bootable drive, I carry a pocket usb thumb drive that's 128GB with Ubuntu Studio on it so I can boot into my own OS on school PCs all the time. Just have to make sure the boot sequence in the BIOS is set to read USB EFI as the first boot device on PCs and just hold down I believe it is the command key when turning on a Mac.

garbage hard drive and extremely difficult to change SSD (if you choose to go that route). i have the bigger version and even though its a premium product it is the only computer whose hard drive has ever failed on me.
sure ifixit makes a kit to change the hard drive but i have heard a few people accidentally ruining their screens in the processs.

As for the fusion drive on an iMac:
1TB=32GB SSD+HD
2TB=128GB SSD+HD

Go for the 2TB version.

A few years ago the 21.5" was a good deal over the mac mini mostly because you got a gpu and a 4k monitor. But the gpu is dated now.

this might be a long shot but has anyone seen any iMac Pro deals recently? Those models never seem to go on sale at all anywhere

This is incorrect. You can use an external SSD to boot macOS without a problem. I have done it on multiple machines.

Is there a big difference in speed between an i3 and an i5? Sorry I'm not too computer savvy - this is tempting.
Depending on your usage, yes you will feel a difference between an i3 and an i5. If its just for browsing the internet you wont notice anything.

As far the specifications you are going to pay $999, + tax (state tax) + addons, for an i3 cpu- radeon pro 555x gpu( mobile version)- 8gb ram (probably a single stick so no dual channel)- 1tb HardDrive (not even an SSD...thats a slap in the face)- 21.5" large bezel 4k display(really?) and to top it off who knows if the motherboard is even capable of compatible upgrades(even though it will cost another $999 just to change anything). That is laughable price for the hardware your getting BUT I guess its considered a fair price in the applesphere.
