Apple iMac 21.5-inch (Core i3)

 

The Apple iMac 21.5-inch (Core i3) is the system that can convert your friend/relative/significant other into a Mac-faithful. It has a great design, stellar performance, and a pretty kickass price. For all these reasons and more, the Apple iMac...

Apple 21.5-inch Core i3 iMac/3.06GHz

 

There's little doubt that 2010 is the year of the iPad and iPhone for Apple, with the company largely focusing on the new kids on the block. But the Mac ...

Apple 27in iMac 2013 review

 

Apple's latest 27in iMacs are slim, lovely and very expensive. They don't have optical drives anymore, as Apple switched to online software distribution and OS recovery last year. What this polished all-in-one does have is four USB3 ports, an SDHC card...

It’s beautiful and very powerful but the extra upgrades make this high-spec iMac rather too costly for most

Apple 27in LED Cinema Display review

 

If you're a fan of the 27in Apple iMac, but don't want to give up the portability of your MacBook Pro or expandability of your Mac Pro, Apple thinks you'll love its 27in LED Cinema Display. The display is essentially a 27in iMac without the computer,...

Apple’s 27in LED Cinema Display makes a great companion to any Mac that uses a Mini DisplayPort connection, but is especially well suited to Mac portable users who can take advantage of the provided Mag Safe power connector and the display’s USB ports...

Apple 27in 3.2GHz iMac review

 

Apple is famed for its stylish and well-built computers, and the company's latest 27in iMac is no exception. It hasn't changed much in appearance from the last model, but this isn't a bad thing.

The latest 27in iMac is a stylish, compact and quiet computer with a superb quality screen. Considering its price, we wish it had faster performance in both applications and games though.

Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i3/3.2-GHz)

 

The 27-inch Apple iMac has one of the best widescreen displays we've seen, and it still makes a strong case for your living room.

Great high-resolution, IPS panel screen ; Space-saving, all aluminum design ; Premium look and feel ; Speed improvement over older 27-inch iMac ; Wireless keyboard and mouse

Aluminum body heats up ; Graphics could've been better

The Apple iMac 27-inch all-in-one desktop combines a slim, space saving computer and a home entertainment device very well. It has a magnificent IPS panel screen, but has a disappointing graphics card, and still continues to sell at a very premium...

Apple 27in Thunderbolt Display

 

From most angles, Apple's new 27in Thunderbolt Display looks just like the 27in LED Cinema Display released last year. However, if you take a closer look at what the Thunderbolt Display has to offer, you'll find a display that's ideal for owners of the...

Can charge Apple laptops; FireWire 800, USB and ethernet connectivity; single cable from Mac cuts down clutter

Stand lacks flexibility; reflective screen limits display placement; few customisation options

For owners of the 2011 MacBook Air, the Thunderbolt Display is a fantastic way to get iMac-like features while still being able to walk away with one of the lightest laptops available. If your Mac has Thunderbolt, FireWire 800 and gigabit ethernet, the...

Apple 27in LED Cinema Display

 

If you're a fan of the 27in iMac, but don't want to give up the portability of your MacBook Pro or expandability of your Mac Pro, Apple thinks you'll love its new 27in LED Cinema Display. The display is basically a 27in iMac without the computer,...

Magsafe connector to charge Mac portables; built-in speakers and iSight

Limited adjustment options; no height or pivot adjustment; glossy screen is prone to glare; Apple doesn’t officially support using the LED Cinema Display on anything but Mini DisplayPort

Apple’s 27in LED Cinema Display makes a great companion to any Mac that uses a Mini DisplayPort connection, but is especially well suited to Mac portable users who can take advantage of the provided Mag Safe power connector and the display’s USB...

Apple iMac 27in Intel Core i3 review

 

Is Mac's all-in-one Intel iMac i3 powerhouse the photographer's dream machine?

Huge screen resolution, processing power

Potential expense, glossy screen reflections
