Apple iMac ( 27-inch, unibody, 2009)

CNET
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: With a 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, the 27-inch Apple iMac that we reviewed doesn't offer a dramatic increase in speed compared to previous models, but the LED-backlit display and specification tweaks are still very welcome.
  • Pros: Better specs at a similar price point to its predecessor; big, beautiful, bright display; all-aluminium case.
  • Cons: Included Magic Mouse is an acquired taste; with a widescreen, high-definition display, the iMac would benefit from a Blu-ray drive.

Apple iMac 27

22 July 2011
  • Summary: Bien es cierto que es dificil encontrar en el mercado una configuración Windows tan equilibrada y que hile tan fino como este equipo con el sistema operativo Mac OS X Mountain Lion de Apple. Pero si bien el nuevo procesador, las nuevas configuraciones SSD y los últimos chips gráficos de NVIDIA justifican una actualización de la gama, su elevado precio hace pensarse dos veces el cambio .
  • Pros: Procesador Intel Core i Haswell, Gráfica NVIDIA GeForce 775M, Conectividad 802.11ac, Nuevo sistema MacOS Mavericks, Diseño muy cuidado
  • Cons: Precio muy elevado, No tiene tecnología táctil

Apple iMac 27-inch (Thunderbolt)

PC Magazine
13 April 2011
  • Conclusion: It's pricey, has a huge screen, and is as powerful as an Asgardian thunder god. If you need a graphics PC for your business, the new Apple iMac 27-inch (Thunderbolt) will rival the huge tower workstations currently available. For the rest of us who don't live and die by deliverable deadlines, however, other recent all-in-one PCs out-innovate the Aluminum beast.
  • Pros: Huge 27-inch display. 2,560-by-1,440 (larger than 1080p HD) screen resolution. High-end discrete 3D graphics. Two Thunderbolt ports. Supports two external displays. 802.11a/b/g/n 5GHz Wi-Fi. Wireless keyboard and mouse. No cost optional Magic Trackpad. No bloatware. Includes iLife suite and FaceTime HD. New ambient light sensor. Color calibrated display.
  • Cons: Only Thunderbolt input for display (No HDMI in, no mini DisplayPort in). No Blu-ray. Could use a matte screen. Pricier than other high-end all-in-one desktops.

Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i5) Review

Digitaltrends
31 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Few brands can hope to even come close to the iconic iMac in brand recognition. The ubiquitous glass-and-aluminum slab has become a fixture in dorm rooms, offices and living rooms, and with its 2010 refresh, Apple manages to keep the same familiar face, but inject even more power into the tiny chassis by adopting Intel’s Core series processors and full-power desktop graphics cards from AMD.
  • Pros: Drool-worthy 27-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display, Top-notch industrial design and build quality, Ultra-fast bootup with SSD option, Killer gaming performance with Radeon HD 5750, Surprisingly ample sound, Cool and quiet, even during gaming
  • Cons: Abysmal keyboard and mouse, No analog 5.1-channel outputs, Blu-ray option, Pricy relative to similarly equipped PCs

  • Summary: A formidable all-in-one, with updated Haswell internals, but an even higher price. After last year’s iMac redesign, Apple has stuck to the tried and tested in 2013. As such, this year’s iMacs are little more than a refresh, with a handful of upgrades. The most obvious change is the inclusion of new Intel Haswell CPUs.

27-inch Apple iMac review

TechRadar UK
6 November 2013
  • Summary: Apple's large-screen all-in-one desktop Mac gets some welcome late 2013 improvements
  • Pros: Haswell processors, 802.11ac, Beautiful slimline design, Nvidia 7 Series graphics, Good custom build options, There's plenty to like about the late 2013 27-inch iMacs. The new processors prove their worth in our benchmarking tests, and although the off-the-shelf Core i5s lack a Hyper Threading feature, Turbo Boost gives them a welcome burst of speed when needed. The new graphics processors are very welcome too, especially as they enjoy double the onboard memory of the...
  • Cons: No optical drive, Limited upgrade options, £50 or £100 more expensive than last year, No Hyper Threading on standard processors, Didn't get a Retina screen option, We've few complaints about the 2013 refresh. They're expensive, of course, but not poor value for money. The fact that the cheaper 27-inch model increased in price by more than the rest of the range is offset by its step ahead in processing and graphics power, breaking the spec parity with the more expensiv...

Apple iMac 27in review

expertreviews.co.uk
30 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Apple's latest 27in iMacs are slim, lovely and very expensive. They don't have optical drives anymore, as Apple switched to online software distribution and OS recovery last year. What this polished all-in-one does have is four USB3 ports, an SDHC card reader and two Thunderbolt ports on its back panel. Thunderbolt can be used to connect either high-speed external storage or up to two extra displays to complement the 27in 2,560x1,440 integrated screen.
