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.

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

Expert Review

  • 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

Neuer iMac im Test: jetzt mit 3D-Power

CNET
13 March 2009
  • Summary: Apple bringt einen neuen iMac auf den Markt – ganz ohne Tamtam. Was heißt das? Am Design ändert sich nichts – ansonsten hätten wir es alle schon längst mitbekommen. Aber warum auch, denn sowohl die 20- als auch die 24-Zoll-Variante im schlanken Alu-Gehäuse sieht immer noch gut aus. Dafür haben die Entwickler unter der Haube so einiges verändert – unter anderem gibt es neben Nvidia-Grafikkarten nun auch auf Wunsch 3D-Chips von ATI.
  • Pros: bezahlbar, ordentliche Grafikleistung, hervorragendes Multitasking, erstklassiges Betriebssystem
  • Cons: nur wenige interessante Neuerungen
