  • 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

  • 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

  • Excerpt: The stylish Apple iMac, with its shiny white enamel-like exterior and gorgeous wide-screen, 17-inch LCD, isn't just about good looks. Under all that fancy design beats the heart of a true computer. In general, Apple systems are highly regarded by many in the creative arts; the Apple iMac, however, can satisfy traditional and creative academics alike.

  • Excerpt: Certainly the most decorative of the home systems reviewed, the translucent-indigo Apple iMac has a stunning design and a simpler-than-simple setup. The iMac empowers first-time users to get on the Internet in almost as little time as it takes to open the box. Inside the iMac carton, there are few pieces to fuss with: the main unit, the keyboard, the mouse, and three cables (power, keyboard, and mouse).
