Apple iMac

  • Excerpt: The Apple iMac has been a smash hit from the beginning. Its success lives on not only because of its smooth curves, all-in-one design, and playful colors—inspiring many copycats—but also because of its straightforward ease of use. Apple touts its six-step setup process, which is as easy as it sounds. Some computer novices, however, could get confused by the setup poster, which uses only pictures—not words.

  • Excerpt: This revised version of the stylish iMac adds some changes that most users will welcome, the most noticeable being that the wide-screen LCD has grown to 17 inches, with a resolution of 1,440-by-900. Other improvements are the inclusion of a new graphics processor, the nVidia GeForce4 MX (though no performance match for the GeForce4 Ti 4600 or ATI Radeon 9700 Pro) and the new OS X (10.2), code-named Jaguar.

Apple iMac ( 2008 Edition)

CNET
16 February 2015
  • Summary: The iMac is still the best all-in-one desktop on the market. We love the physical design of the system, and the new components on the inside make it very quick. Our only real gripe is the fact it's difficult to upgrade after purchasing, and upgrading at the point of purchase will cost you an arm and a leg
  • Pros: Performance; design; upgraded Intel Penryn chip.
  • Cons: Pricey upgrade options.

  • Conclusion: With the latest version of its all-in-one desktop, Apple left everything that was great about the 27-inch iMac alone (namely its best-in-class screen and beautiful design), while making some serious improvements to it internal components. In almost every way, this top-of-the line model beats every other AIO on the market.
  • Pros: Excellent performance, Beautiful design, Best-in-class LCD
  • Cons: No Blu-ray drive or HDMI port, Peripherals will require learning curve for Mac newbies

Is the new iMac just another processor bump, or is it a serious upgrade?

9 May 2011
  • Summary: Every year I review the iMac, and every year my conclusion is the same: the iMac remains the single best all-in-one computer available. The 27-inch model is virtually the only machine of its class on the market, and it's hard to argue with its $1,699 entry price given that a similar IPS display alone costs nearly $1,000.
  • Pros: Excellent display, Solid performance, Competitive pricing
  • Cons: No Blu-ray drive, Ultra-glossy display, Thunderbolt not yet useful

  • Conclusion: With a little new on the outside and a lot new on the inside, the 21.5-inch iMac continues to be our overall top pick for an all-in-one desktop computer. Dramatic improvements in CPU and graphics power send it hurtling to the front of the AIO pack, and its stylish design would fit perfectly in a living room as well as an office.
  • Pros: Excellent performance, Gorgeous, minimalist design, Superior LCD
  • Cons: No Blu-ray drive or HDMI port, Peripherals will require learning curve for Mac newbies
