  • 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

Apple iMac ( 2008 Edition)

CNET
25 April 2009
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: The iMac isn't just about hip style—it's a bold reminder of Apple's ability to design simple-to-set-up computers and bundle essential and appealing applications. Whether you find the design aesthetically pleasing or not, the iMac, with its 15-inch flat-panel display (a 17-inch display is also available) perched atop a stem, akin to a funky flower pot, makes a lasting impression—and our Editors' Choice in this category.

Apple iMac (Nvidia GeForce GT 130)

PC Magazine
30 May 2008
  • Conclusion: The Apple iMac 24-inch (GeForce GT 130), the company's new top-of-the-line iMac, is a moderate refresh. The new Nvidia motherboard chipset and discrete graphics give it a leg up on the previous high-end model, and CTO (configure to order) options give it the flexibility to serve all but the most specialized content creators.
  • Pros: Windows- and Mac-compatible. Fully HD-capable screen. Recyclable aluminum-and-glass construction. EPEAT Gold certified and Energy Star 5.0 precertified. Minimal cables. 4GB of DDR3 RAM comes standard. No crapware. iLife '09 included. More memory, storage and graphics power for the same $2,199 price.
  • Cons: No media card slots. Mighty Mouse is slippery and annoying. Vista 64-bit installation is complicated. No Blu-ray option. No eSATA. No numeric keypad and cursor control on the standard keyboard. Only 90 days of phone tech support.
