Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i5)

 

Few brands can hope to even come close to the iconic iMac in brand recognition. The ubiquitous glass-and-aluminum slab has become a fixture in dorm rooms, offices and living rooms, and with its 2010 refresh, Apple manages to keep the same familiar...

Drool-worthy 27-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display ; Top-notch industrial design and build quality ; Ultra-fast bootup with SSD option ; Killer gaming performance with Radeon HD 5750 ; Surprisingly ample sound ; Cool and quiet, even during gaming

Abysmal keyboard and mouse ; No analog 5.1-channel outputs, Blu-ray option ; Pricy relative to similarly equipped PCs

Apple sticks with tried-and-true design but cranks speed to maximum with the latest generation of iMacs.

Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i5)

 

The Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i5) gives you speedy quad-core power, better 3D graphics, and the same large screen as the previous 27-inch (Core i7) for a couple hundred bucks less.

True quad-core power. Wireless keyboard/mouse. Mini DisplayPort in/out. Screen has 2,560 by 1,440 resolution. Large display. Green certifications. 802.11a/n 5GHz support

Still no Blu-ray drive. No eSATA. Card reader is SD/SDHC/SDXC only. Requires third-party adapter for HDMI or DVI

Apple iMac summer 2010 (Intel Core i3 3.06GHz, 21.5 in)

 

In time for the back-to-school buying season, Apple has updated its iMac desktop line with a broad assortment of under-the-hood features. This review will focus on the entry-level $1,199 model, but all four of Apple's default iMac configurations...

Strong single-core and multitasking performance for its price; upgraded graphics chip handles most Mac games with ease; SDXC card slot supports higher-capacity cards than older iMacs; best-looking all-in-one on the market.

No HDMI input; no Blu-ray; native quad-core CPUs better at multithreaded applications; small screen size for its price; runs hot.

Apple has elected to keep its iMac firmly grounded as a productivity device. You'll find few home entertainment conveniences in Apple's new iMac, and you can find larger screens in other all-in-ones for less. Few will offer performance like this iMac,...

Apple iMac (27-inch/Core i5) All-in-One PC Desktop Review

 

Beautiful big 27-inch display ; Blazing performance

Pricey ; Lacks extras: Multi-touch, Blu-ray, TV tuner, etc

Only slightly slower than the blazing Core i7 iMac, this Core i5-based 27-incher runs Windows and OS X, but you don't get extras like mulit-touch, Blu-ray, or a TV tuner.

Best all-in-one desktop suitable for gaming

 

The new quad-core version of the Apple iMac is the fastest all-in-one desktop you can buy. It even beats some tower-based desktops in performance tests, and reviewers say it is the best choice if you want an all-in-one computer for serious...

Gorgeous high-resolution display, faster than any other all-in-one, good performance for gaming

Expensive, no Blu-ray drive, no HDMI port

Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i5) Review

 

Digital Trends published a Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i5) Review.

The Tuffwrap is a very nice case for the iPad and is my new favorite case. You may have issue with the design of the Tuffwrap if you use the screen lock a lot, but most will find the Tuffwrap is an excellent choice for protecting the iPad.

Apple iMac (21.5-Inch, 2010 Version)

 

The 2010 revision of the iMac, with a slate of new, more powerful components, continues to be the all-in-one desktop computer to beat.

Stark, beautiful design; innovative peripherals; beefed-up performance; stellar LCD

Lacks Blu-ray drive, HDMI port; mouse features take getting used to; a few add-ons aren't included that should be

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Apple iMac i3 2010 review

 

Every year we run into the same problem: what do you call the update to Apple's latest device? This is always going to be the case when you keep the name, but change the design and specs of a device. So here we have the Apple iMac 21.5-inch, announced...

Design, relatively powerful, wireless keyboard and mouse included, excellent screen

Still no Blu-ray option, connections can be inconvenient around the back

For the average user who wants to indulge in a little multimedia consumption and get on with a range of typical office tasks, the iMac makes a great choice

Apple iMac (27in, mid-2010)

 

Apple has updated its range of iMac desktop computers, with faster processors and better graphics the order of the day. The new iMac looks virtually i...

LED-backlit display, excellent design and construction, good performance, new processors and graphics cards

No HDMI or Blu-ray, no number pad on included keyboard, glossy display can be distracting

Apple's latest iMac retains an identical design to earlier iMacs but features upgraded internal components. If you've recently purchased an iMac there isn't enough to justify an upgrade, but if you're looking to purchase your first Mac or want to...
