Summary: Took the plunge.....early results are partially encouraging. Browser is not convenient. I installed Google Chrome. Loosing ability to right click is also inconvenient. Haven't figured out how to duplicate tabs or rename book-marks yet (assuming that ability exists). The keyboard is sleek, maybe too sleek.....hard time getting to shift on the right while typing with both hands.. Couple of hot pixels towards the top that show up sometimes.....
Summary: This iMac really is the best purchase I've ever made . From me using an 8 year old computer to this is phenomenal everything about it the screen size is overwhelming, the processing power is mentally insane and the speakers quality are just beautiful. I use it for web browsing, youtube, word editing, app developing and various other stuff. Thanks for reading.
Summary: Overall the machine is pretty nice, trying to get used to Mac world after being a PC user. Of note, I have had my machine for about 3 weeks and my magic mouse has already stopped working. Thankfully I had a spare USB handy but a bit annoying after spending $80 on it.
Summary: I bought this iMac to replace my previous 20" iMac that was 8 years old. I stayed with the Apple name brand, because of ingenuity that Windows has never caught up with and 8 years virus free (in the 8 years of owning my iMac we went through 3 Windows laptops with Norton installed due to viruses). I was blown away with how far Apple has come in gaming since I purchased my first iMac.
After years of putting off decision to switch to mac, sorry I did

Summary: Like many people, I've labored over decision to finally get rid of my pc to buy a mac. I finally took the plunge. And I'm sorry I did. Yes, the monitor is beautiful. But Apple, in their arrogance to try to tell you what you need, makes it very difficult to increase the size of the display fonts. The fonts are so small I had to get about 2 inches away from the monitor to see anything.
Summary: Bought this iMac for my daughter last year and she and my son-in-law are very satisfied with its quality and capability. As matter of fact, I have since made the transition from Windows to iMac and find the Apple Operating System much more user friendly.
