Summary: One year after purchasing this damaged iMac for my parents, I really regret not returning it. I've used Mac's for years and myself have an iMac. The problem started when it arrived, it was dented where the dvd player is and there was a purple spot on the screen. I contacted the seller and was told I could return it but would have to pay shipping, plus...my problem was I was only stateside for two weeks and wanted to get my parents up to speed on the computer.
Summary: This computer has been nothing but problems for me! Very slow, difficult to update, won't connect to wifi after sleeping which is one of my biggest problems. I bought this computer for compatiblity with my other Apple products, but when working properly, that's all its good for! Many programs that I came across are not even compatible with this computer. I've lost all faith in darn near every Apple product.
Summary: I got this computer and it had many problems. Once I got the computer I sent it back. I went to UPS to send it back. its been over 2 months i havent gotten my refund!!! That is not fair that i havent gotten my money?!!!!! when i paid almost 2,000 dollars for computer that that already came with problems!!!!!!
Summary: My last computer was a dell desktop which I was reasonably satisfied with. It came time to upgrade and because of a couple of Mac head friends of mine constantly going on about how great Macs are, i decided to go all out and buy the top of the line iMac as the family computer. Before doing so I spent 45 minutes on the phone with 3 different levels of expert at Apple. I had a very simple question: Can I use the iMac as a display for my windows based Laptop.
Summary: Day 1 -I received my Apple 27" Imac. At first I thought it was great, but then I realize the computer has a serious issue. It has a flicking problem, that Apple knew about when selling the machine. It causes serious head aches. Anyway apple is notified that the machine needs to be returns. However, they promise to fix the issue so I don't return it within 24 hours so I don't return the machine. They stated they need to talk to their engineering department.
Summary: Apple 27-inch New iMac (Aluminium silver) - ( Intel Core i5 Quad-core 3.2GHz Processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GT 675M, OS X Mountain Lion) The beauty of this great screen is ruined by the fact that yoou need either the vision of an F32 Raptor pilot or a pair of binoculars to read the tiny text on it.
