Summary: I purchased a lemon. My first apple and it has been in the shop for repairs three times. Fortunately the repairs have been covered by the warranty but it has been nothing but trouble. Perhaps Apple should start producing these in the US.
Summary: The seller say is the latest iMac in the market when in fact is two models behind. It is actually the FAT one with DVD which the seller coincidently "forgets" to mention. A USED COMPUTER which is WAY OVER THE PRICE over a refurbished newer slim iMac directly from Apple and with one year warranty. I hate when people try to mislead others to benefit themselves by not telling the truth.
Buyer beware! Apple won't replace a defective machine, even if they can't fix it!

Summary: I ordered a new 27" iMac in January. It was plagued with serious issues from the very beginning and regularly crashes without warning. Needless to say, I've lost significant data, and cannot use the machine at all because it is too unreliable. I started calling Apple Support within a couple of weeks of delivery. They put me though a series of time consuming but ultimately useless steps.
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: Always been a PC user but wanted to try out an Apple product. After several months of use, i am going back to PC. You get better specs for less money and PC's are much more compatible when it comes to software and accessories. Ended up buying a Dell All-in-one and I am much happier with the performance. Hope this helps others.
Summary: The product arrived in a box that looked brand new. After un-boxing everything looked like it was in excellent condition. Turned it on and the wireless keyboard and mouse would not pair up with the computer. In addition, the sound coming from the speakers was cutting in and out. I plugged in a wired keyboard and mouse thinking I could troubleshoot further after registering and getting in to the operating system. No luck with that either.
Summary: I ended up ordering two of these because the first one went missing from the UPS truck and then we ordered another one and guess what!!! It never came. I suggest that anyone wanting to buy a computer, go to Apple because after two tries and three weeks, I never got mine. I had to argue with amazon for several hours to get my refund put back on ma credit card. It was a nightmare!
Summary: I recently bought an iMac 27 inches but unfortunately was unlucky enough to get one with yellowish tinging at the bottom part of the screen; apple care wasn't much help as they wanted me to return it, get a refund and just order another one. I figured, fine but was actually hoping for an advanced replacement. The second one had the same issue..no luck with apple care again, they want me to reorder again which i couldn't now with my card limit.
Summary: I spent $2700 on the 27 inch i7 version of the iMac and it came with NO documentation and NO POWER CORD! Seriously??? What a load of junk. No quality control. I hate over priced Apple products. There is no reason to put up with this ridiculous company and their OVER PRICED junk.
