Apple iMac (20-Inch Aluminum)

PC Magazine
2 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Finding any drawbacks to the newest Apple iMac is so hard it's almost like splitting hairs. The new aluminum iMac is a desktop nonpareil in both senses of the word: It is without equal, and (like the candy) it is sweet .
  • Pros: Sleeker and thinner than the previous iMac. More recyclable materials. Energy Star 4.0. Still the all-in-one standard. Same reduced number of cables. Powerful, even in Windows Vista with Boot Camp. Up to Core 2 Extreme and 1TB drive available. iLife 08 suite is improved and still standard. Good price.
  • Cons: No media card slots. No TV tuner option. Glossy screen is a bit reflective, no option for antiglare. Not quite full HD resolution. Wireless keyboard and mouse are extra—and there are better mice than the Mighty Mouse (right-click button must be enabled in OS X, shape is slippery).

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: Undoubtedly Apple's greatest ever desktop. The iMac is a showpiece computer that garners admiring glances towards your desk whether it's turned on or off. You might even call it the iMac daddy. Ha ha, HA! Sorry.
  • Pros: The Apple iMac doesn't just look stunning. Its 1680x150-pixel display (also available in 24 inches) displays stunning, super-sharp images. Overall it's not that different from the previous model, but then if it ain't broke... It does have the new 802.11n Wi-Fi adaptor, though for better wireless range. Naturally, being an iMac, it's a breeze to use, with Leopard working like the big cat it is. And that Intel dual core processor? Well, it makes sure you won't miss your...
  • Cons: ... unless you want to play games that is. The iMac isn't exactly a games machine. While the ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro graphics chip is decent, it's definitely not going to please hardcore gamers, occasionally struggling with 3D graphics. Also it would have been nice to get a Blu-ray drive. Other than that, there aren't too many minus points here.
