Apple iMac

PC Magazine
19 March 2015
  • 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.

  • 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
