Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i7)


Huge display. Quad-core CPU with TurboBoost. Wireless keyboard. Wireless Magic Mouse. Mini DisplayPort input. Better screen resolution than a 1080p HDTV. EPEAT Gold and Energy Star 5.0 certified

Card reader is SD-only. No eSATA. Requires third-party adapter for HDMI or DVI input. No Blu-ray option. No numeric keypad on wireless keyboard

Apple drops a Nehalem-based Core i7 processor in their class-leading iMac 27-inch. It has a fairly hefty price tag, but backs it up with stellar performance and the high-quality design we've come to expect from the fruit company in Cupertino. The iMac...

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) review


Big screen, thin design, fast, looks good, Fusion drive

Not very portable

While we had reservations about the 21.5-inch in the workplace, the 27-inch model offers enough beef to dispel those fears. It's a big, powerful, and thoroughly enjoyable machine to use and one with which you won't be disappointed. Obviously there is...

We are very impressed with this computer. This is our first time owning an iMac and we have managed to work our way through the Apple product transition somewhat flawlessly (with the aid of some cheat tools online!). This computer does everything we...

My Gateway outperforms my new Apple


Slow to load programs and double the actions to just close them out. The MS office programs suck by comparison to the full MS suite on my Gateway. Spread sheet and Word processors are junior grade attempts at top of the line processing.
