Summary: We are very happy with the purchase of the iMac. It came in the promised time frame and in good condition. The only concern we have is the need to have the fan control software on the computer. Our concern is why is the fan running so hard in the first place? Shouldn't it be checked to see why the fan is running? Other than that we are very happy with our purchase.
Summary: I got a fairly good deal on my iMac, from Amazon warehouse and I wasn't impressed with the packaging. My computer had some kind of tape over the screen as protection, it wasn't in a proper Apple box (so it was used previously which was fine with me). It was packed with large grey cylinder styrofoam. The main problem was the description said it was "Like New, in Apple box". Also, they forgot to send the power cord, and wanted me to return the entire item to Amazon.
Summary: Takes up very little space. Has a tremendous amount of memory. Very clear screen. Had to buy USB Super Drive to see DVD, to load programs from DVDs and CDs and to download onto CDs & DVDs. Sorry the super drive was eliminated from this model. The included keyboard only has numbers on top and is battery operated.
Excerpt: I upgraded from a iMac Intel Duo so this is def a lot more machine. The description said it was a "free upgrade" to Mavericks and I assumed it would come with M Lion and could be upgraded if i chose but it came preloaded with Mavs so be it. Seems to be a pretty good OS so far. Haven't had it long enough to have formed an opinion on the Fusion drive but the boot up doesn't seem to happen as fast as my Macbook pro with an internal SSD, not sure why that is.
Summary: Very sleek-looking Mac, don't need a bigger screen that 21.5, especially if you hook it up to your tv to watch online videos. Main problem is I'm having issues syncing my external hard drive for Time Machine. Also, I hate the little keyboard, so I decided to keep my old one, that has the number pad and keys that you can actually comfortably type on.

Summary: We hadn't necessarily planned on purchasing a new computer. My son's homebuilt Windows Vista desktop had been slowly dying and finally stopped turning on, so this past weekend we went PC shopping. We had just planned on window shopping, but ended up purchasing this Apple iMac MD093LL/A 21.5-Inch Desktop when they were able to match Amazon's reduced price at our the local Apple store. We still had to pay tax however.
Totally in love and runs beautifully but read why I returned it for a MacBook Pro

Summary: I didn't grow up with computers like other 20 somethings of my generation. My first computer was a dell because it was a cheap and I was always told how horrible Apple products were and not worth the price. I finally decided to buy an Imac for a few reasons. I wanted something to handle Photoshop and Illustrator. My mouse pad on my laptop is crapping out on me. My other laptop suddenly started having a screen seizure. (Laptop 1 is a Compaq. Laptop 2 is a Toshiba.
