Apple iMac 27-inch (Thunderbolt)

PC Magazine
26 September 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.
  • 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 FaceT...
  • 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, unibody, 2009)

CNET
27 October 2009
  • 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.

  • 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.
