  • Pros: Superlative 2,560x1,440 display, Swift performance, Matchless software, Available Fusion Drive
  • Cons: Expensive, No HDMI input, Awkward rear-facing ports, No hard drive access, No height adjustment

PC Magazine
9 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Apple drops a Nehalem-based Core i7 processor in their class-leading iMac 27-inch.
