Review: Apple 27-Inch iMac

Wired
24 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Put one of Apple’s new 27-inch Core i7 iMacs on your desk, and you run the risk of alienating yourself from your friends, co-workers and loved ones. Sure, the sheer speed of the thing is amazing — the new Core i7 processor is outrageously fast — but it’s the massive screen that will turn your brain...
  • Pros: Did we mention the screen? Sexpot good looks. Core i7 processor is fast enough for the autobahn, and quad-core technology means you get support for next year’s apps today.
  • Cons: All-glass front enclosure throws off enough glare to give you a tan. Screen is too big for anyone under 6-foot-2, unless they’re sitting on a phone book. Speakers have too much low-end. You’re better off hooking up some sleek Harman Kardons or, better yet, some primo headphones.

  • 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.

Apple iMac (Nvidia GeForce GT 130)

PC Magazine
5 January 2009
  • 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...
  • 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.
