Worked great...until it didn't

Disappointed, B&H Photo
21 May 2015
  • Excerpt: I'm normally over the moon about Apple products, but as of right now the display on this model has developed instability and vertical green banding, especially visible viewing dark objects on the screen. I'm a professional photographer working with photos constantly.

I'm giving it 3 stars because I got a Kernel ...

Abaraham Endale, Amazon
22 March 2015
  • Summary: I'm giving it 3 stars because I got a Kernel Panic after I used the iMac for about two weeks. It happened when I tried to restart the computer one day and everything froze (applications would not close, operations would not respond).

If you must have MAC, go for higher spec.

AZ Ed, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been an IT manager the past 16 years of my life and made pretty good living at it, still going strong. My 2-cents on iMAC 27" is if you really decided to go MAC, and you get passed the Apple exclusivity and compatibility issues, go for the top end model.

These come with a limited warrantee, buyer beware.

  • Summary: I bought 2 of these 10.8 systems this year. One in March and one in May of 2014. I have some older equipment and I cannot use the new 10.9 system. So these were a great find. Nowhere else on the internet could I find a 10.8 system.

One Bad Apple

B. B. Johnson, Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: I had an excellent experience with my old Mac, but within a month of using this one I needed a new hard drive, mother board and memory. It was covered under Apple's warranty, but it took two weeks of working with Apple reps to get a green light to take it to a shop.

Wrong Choice

telefoto, B&H Photo
25 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I have been Mac only for 10 years, so this is not buyer's remorse. I do quite a bit of photo editing and this is the slowest Mac I have ever bought. Not slowest processor, slowest machine. 8GB of RAM and 4 cores and I get the spinning beach ball when I open Safari!
  • Pros: Great Display
  • Cons: Too Slow

Nice Computer

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: Works fine right out of the box, picture is beautiful. However, Apple gives you no means to adjust the vertical height of the monitor, which is 21in high. Menu bars are at the top of the screen, I wear bifocals, and my neck hurts from positioning my head to see the top of the screen.

If monitor is not adjustable enough, you're out of luck. There's no retrofit of a VESA adapter possible.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: There is no height adjustment of the monitor which makes viewing less than comfortable for some people (me). A solution might be to use VESA adapter so that a third party stand could be used. Unfortunately the standard iMac stand cannot be replaced with a VESA adapter.

SD card reader don't function at all

Richard Tang, Amazon
30 January 2014
  • Summary: Thank you (Amazon) for taking the responsibility to resolve the issue that I have with the 27" Apple iMac which I personally think it should have been Apple's duty to fulfill. The truth is we ordered two of the same computer in the same household and both computer appeared to have the same issue...

Base model not so good, get the maxed out version!

Ryan D, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: So had a base model 2012 21.5 inch iMac. I almost loved it--but I found it was a little too prone to stuttering and choppiness with clicking and scrolling. Also I found the 102 ppi screen surprisingly fuzzy looking. So I made a decision I thought I might regret--but don't.
