Apple iMac G5 (Iss. 21 2004)

PC Magazine
4 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Apple has another design coup on its hands with the iMac G5's clean, simple look—imagine if an iPod grew into a full-size, self-contained PC.
  • Pros: Simple, stunning all-in-one design. Quiet. Just one cord (for power), thanks to optional Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Gorgeous 20-inch screen and desktop-caliber hard drive.
  • Cons: Can?t upgrade graphics. Built-in speakers don?t deliver much bass.
