Apple iMac (24-inch)

PC Magazine
19 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Apple's iMac grows up, and he's a big 'un. The 24-inch iMac is a great system for professionals and media junkies alike.
  • Pros: Larger, brighter screen. Faster, more powerful Core 2 Duo processor. More capable graphics. Large 500GB hard drive.
  • Cons: Takes up a bit more desk space than the 20-incher. A bit pricey compared with systems that come without a monitor. No media card slots. No TV tuner.

Apple iMac (24-inch Penryn)

PC Magazine
19 April 2009
  • Conclusion: The iconic iMac now adds a next-gen Intel Penryn processor to its mix. It's faster, more powerful, and still the one to beat.
  • Pros: Outperforms some quad-core Windows systems. Windows- and Mac-compatible. Fully HD-capable screen. Recyclable aluminum-and-glass construction. Energy Star 4.0-certified. Minimal cables. A speedy 2GB of RAM is standard. No bloatware.
  • Cons: No media card slots. Mighty Mouse. Other systems are starting to catch up in design. No Blu-ray.

  • Summary: We liked the first iMacs we saw, and very little has changed with the 24" model so we like it as well. It remains one of the quietest off-the-shelf systems it is possible to buy and, with a built-in 24" screen, it offers fairly good value-for-money. A similarly configured Dell system that we looked at was only about US$200 cheaper, and it lacked the integration and style that are Apple's hallmarks.

Apple iMac 24-inch (2009)

ZDNet
18 March 2009
  • Summary: Apple made a number of changes to the 24-inch iMac, but making it available at this price is the most impressive. The rest of the updates are welcome, and Apple's multitasking capability remains unmatched. Provided you like your all-in-ones best as straightforward desktop computers, the iMac will meet your expectations with speed and elegance.
  • Pros: One of, if not the, most affordable 24-inch all-in-one PCs, Twice as much hard-drive space as older models, Fast Nvidia graphics chip makes the iMac a capable gaming system, Best-in-class multitasking performance, iLife digital media suite comes standard
  • Cons: Fewer interesting hardware features compared with recent Windows-based all-in-ones

  • Conclusion: Apple's service and support policies remain one of its disadvantages, however. The one-year parts and labour policy fits in line with the rest of the industry. The 90-day phone support limit, as always, is subpar. At least Apple's online support site is far ranging and comprehensive, and the active user forums may very well be able to solve any of your problems.
  • Pros: Fewer interesting hardware features compared with recent Windows-based all-in-ones
  • Cons: One of, if not the, most affordable 24-inch all-in-one PCs, Twice as much hard-drive space as older models, Fast Nvidia graphics chip makes the iMac a capable gaming system, Best-in-class multitasking performance, iLife digital media suite comes standard

Apple iMac 24

itespresso.es
10 September 2012
  • Excerpt: El nuevo Apple iMac de 24 pulgadas tiene el compacto diseño ya familiar para todos, con una pantalla plana, procesador y otros componentes unidos con una peana, que precisamente no es donde se encuentra ahora el corazón del iMac. Sin embargo, la construcción ha cambiado dramáticamente. En lugar de un plástico blanco y acrílico utilizado hasta ahora, el nuevo iMac se ha guardado en una sábana de aluminio moldeado.

  • Excerpt: En.. iMac? Senast uppdaterad 12/3 2009 Namnet iMac antyder att datorn är lite långsammare eller på annat sätt lite enklare för att prisnivån ska vara tilltalande för alla. Och går... En.. iMac ? Senast uppdaterad 12/3 2009 Namnet iMac antyder att datorn är lite långsammare eller på annat sätt lite enklare för att prisnivån ska vara tilltalande för alla. Och går man på det antagandet är detta definitivt ingen iMac.
