Handles day-to-day tasks with ease ; Dead quiet ; Elegant, sturdy construction ; Sharp IPS LCD screen ; Commendable built-in speakers ; Bundled mouse and keyboard

Premium price ; Disappointing CPU performance ; Components are not user replaceable ; Awkward mouse and keyboard

Apple iMac 21.5in (2012) review

 

Apple's latest AiO features its Fusion drive, an 5mm-thin design and Intel Ivy Bridge power. Is it still the dream machine for power users or has it fallen behind the likes of the HP Z1?

Beautiful display

 

I use this computer to run my Adobe Creative Cloud applications and the new Windows 8.1 operating system so I can use my Quicken and QuickBooks. It handles everything fine with no strain on the processor. I just thought it would be a little bit faster...
