Summary: I have just switched back to a Mac after years of using a PC. The difference is night and day. The Mac is so much easier to use (although it took me a short while to get the hang of it), and has many more options and abilities. I am an artist, so I had to switch all my art files from PC to the Mac. It was easy to do and the Mac is so much more art friendly. I have to write quite a lot of documents, so I needed the Mac to handle that too, and it does.
Summary: Great system will not go too far into a review since everything has already been said but make sure you do the following! .Upgrade ram BEFORE you buy it cannot be done later. .I wish I would have invested in the 256GB SSD the 5400RPM drive works but I miss an SSD. .First thing go into the App Store and claim your free update to 10.9 Mavericks I imagine a lot of people will never know to mine was still running 10.8 when I received it.
Summary: The high quality screen alone is with the price. And I save so much money with the free and/or cheep apple software to run it, it was a no briner to invest a little more up front, for a Mac. Plus, no annual virus protection cost. One day, the hardware will fail. It is still a computer, made up of cheep parts. But I have no doubt this machine will still run the most demanding programs in 5 years. How many windows based PC's can say that?
Summary: I am switching from a PC and find that I have to do a lot of "looking" up of things to figure out how to do them--without the manual I purchased I would be completely lost! Also although I was told that the Mac is easier I haven't found that to be true at least not yet-- perhaps when I am more familiar with it I will feel that way. Otherwise it has a big, bright, colorful screen and takes up very little space on my desk-- could use more USB ports .
Summary: This is a great buy I believe,a very powerful and beautiful machine,I bought it to replace a aging hp pavilion, which served me well for 10 years.I bought this imac mainly because I was looking for a Mac to avoid the terrible functionality of the windows 8, which I found to be troublesome in my wifes new laptop.I am very impressed with this machine, and exceptionally pleased with the speakers, for which I fully appreciate because of my usage of You Tube so much.I have...
Summary: Have had this machine for 5 days now and have not been able to use it period. Software updates take days; migration assistant does not work. All I get from Apple is that I have my own personal "carpe facto" who is never in when I am available to talk to him. They will not allow anyone else to try to solve my problems. Worst customer service I have ever received.
Summary: really I'm super surprised with this team is a team with no comparison, really everything works excellent addition to this product will add a memory of 16gb for increasing its capacity so it works really well, I can now give better quality to my work and client mus could be even more satisfied
