Not the cheapest on the block, but certainly the best dressed

Summary: Very well build. One thing i should have given more consideration too is the fact that this lacks a SSD drive, thus slowing down the boot up time. Other than that, it's a MAC. What more is there to say..
Summary: Reviewing the 27" i7 1TB 8GB Fusion model here. Getting 16GB RAM would have been $140 more, so I added 16GB myself for just over $80 (Crucial RAM) for 24GB total. The RAM door was a little tight to remove - I expected pressing the release button to pop it off more easily. Installing the RAM was easy. Putting the door back - again, not as elegant an experience as I had hoped; some force is needed to push it back into place. Note: the 21.5" models are not RAM-upgradable.
Summary: I am transitioning over to Apple products, did some research and decide to purchase. I am getting use to the way Apple works and loving it. I also purchased the magic mouse and set it up via bluetooth. I can get the arrow to move across, up and down the screen but I cannot click or double click to open the apps. Can anyone assist?
Summary: I hate having to sign-in every time I leave the computer for a few minutes. My iMac doesn't have port for my Wacom Cintiq interactive pen display. There don't seem to be any fixes on the internet. Wacom doesn't get back to me. Come on Mac, Wacom this is suppose to be user-friendly.
Summary: Took the plunge.....early results are partially encouraging. Browser is not convenient. I installed Google Chrome. 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......too hard for me to return and and back-up 600 GB worth of data again...... Colors for the monitor are more natural.....I will give you that...
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.
Great Desktop that does more than we need, screen is huge, like watching TV

Summary: We were looking for a new Desktop and this made the most sense as we own an ipad and a MAC. Already being familiar with Apple, this made it easy. 27 inch screen is definitely too big for how close we sit but other than that, it's been great. We've had a Dell Desktop for about 10 years and the ease of use on this just blows Dell away. Apple does most of the setup for you!
Summary: What can I say, after leaving Win Vista, I can't go back. Had a MacBook Pro, and this newer iMac makes the MBP look small and slow. Not Apples fault, but their was nick in the base, and the Apple box. Not the outer box. I believe the seller sent a "damaged" item. Doesn't affect the computer, just a cosmetic blemish. The LOST STAR IS FOR THE SELLER.
