I'm personally using a "vintage" 2012 Macbook Pro (15" Retina, quad i7, 8gb, 256gb SSD) and another "vintage" 2009 Mac Pro (heavily upgraded of course - GTX 960 4gb, 48gb ram, 512gb ssd + 2tb HDD, stock 8 core 2.93ghz for now), and BB works great (as well as Logic and other apps). A 2011 iMac should be fine, as it's at least got a quad core and can have it's ram upgraded. I'd suggest replacing the hard drive with an SSD, of course.
