Pros: Loving the screen resolution and the compact style of the iMac. The price was awesome. it was a refurb, but came with everything needed to get up and running.
Cons: Upgraded to 10.9 and I've had an issue with the screen sleeping at strange times, but it is a known issue with the upgrade. I found a lot of different forums that discuss fixes and so far I have been pretty lucky to not have it ocur on a regular basis
Conclusion: Excellent product. Great monitor, design. Coming from a PC, the use of the software is somewhat confusing, and the help menus are inadequate. Compatibility of I phone to iMac should be seamless and it is not. Sync of calendars, client lists, etc - Call in help desk at Apple is excellent and patient.
Summary: First, it's a great piece of hardware. The screen is magnificent, the itty bitty keyboard a great space saver that leaves plenty of room for the cat to slouch on the keyboard shelf, and the super-duper mouse is fine. I worked with this thing for almost three months, trying to learn to like it.
Summary: Many reviewers have already thoroughly discussed the essential hardware and software features of the 27" iMac. So, I am focusing this review on my experience of upgrading from a G4 igloo iMac that was running System 10.5.8 .
Video Review: Mostly Great, but a couple bummers...

Summary: It is hard to capture how beautiful this computer is in words much less video. You have to see it in person. I took a stab at a video review. I hope you enjoy. Let me know your feedback, thanks!
Summary: I am a longtime Mac using, having started running Photoshop on a Macintosh IIfx back in 1992. Recently I had been using a MacBook Pro on my desk alongside a 21" RGB monitor, running a two screen setup.

Summary: Bought one for my work. Saddest part was it's not for me. But it is a gorgeous computer. Only taking away one star because a computer this size would really benefit from a Blu-ray drive, and I would also like a non-glossy option.
